      Make a Difference 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2! *THIS IS A VIRTUAL RACE!   For our third annual Make A Difference 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 we want to honor Ghandi.   The medal has a quote from him that says,  “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” -Ghandi October 27th is National Make A Difference Day.  So you have the entire month of October  to complete your Make A Difference Day 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 , and we encourage you to go out and do a random act of kindness too! We will be donating at least 15% of each registration to All Hands and Hearts,  which efficiently and effectively addresses the immediate and long-term needs of communities impacted by natural disasters. By listening to local people, and deploying our unique model of engaging volunteers to enable direct impact, we rebuild safe, resilient schools, homes and other community infrastructure. *For a limited time order an official t-shirt and/or hoodie HERE. What: This is a 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 to honor the memory of Ghandi and to encourage everyone to go out and MAKE A DIFFERENCE! You choose which distance you will complete. When: Complete your race any time in October, even better if its October 27th!  *Medals and bibs will begin shipping at the end of September, and after that will ship within 2 to 5 days of signing up Where:  You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us). Why:  Because we love making a difference! Cost:  The price is $20 and that includes your medal, bib and shipping. Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to the Make a Wish Foundation.   *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them.     WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked)  from any location you choose.  You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.  And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5K, 10K, half marathon and more!
