In memory & honor of Michael Jack Bihari, and in support of his sister, Melissa Sacco as they work together to inspire and encourage others to create JOY out of struggle.
WHO, WHAT, WHERE: A virtual race is a race that can be run at any location. You can walk, use the treadmill, run outside, hike or participate in another race. You pick the time. You pick the place! This virtual 5K is family friendly and for everyone: 5K speed racers, casual joggers, walkers, and strollers. Dogs are welcome! (Really, we want to see photos of your dog!) and we would LOVE to see small groups of friends & families doing this in-person together. Find a local park and make it a way to connect with people you love while ALSO moving with a purpose! And bonus points for wearing as much YELLOW as possible!
WHEN: Saturday, April 30th, 2022 ANYTIME you choose!
