On your mark. Get set.
Help end poverty.
Proceeds from Outpace Poverty 2020 benefit the programs and services provided by Catholic Charities of Kansas City-St. Joseph.
It is our mission To Serve & To Lift all whom we come in contact with - serving client’s immediate needs, relieving whatever anxiety or burden is on their heart, while simultaneously seeking to lift them to the dignity of self-reliance.
Here’s how our virtual race works:
Register and start recruiting your virtual team
Get family and friends to commit to some fresh air, healthy exercise and “go the social distance” with you to Outpace Poverty in our area. We can cheer each other on via the Outpace Poverty team sites and on social media. Send us a selfie or short video showing how you are training and why you are running with us – and post it up on your own social media pages. We’ll like, share, heart and retweet it! Be sure to follow our Facebook Event Page!
Run or walk
...on a path, in a park, on a track, on a treadmill – anywhere! There’s no specific route: just be safe and have fun with it. If you and your team decide to run at the same time, be sure to allow at least 6 feet between team members…. or FaceTime while you walk/run in different places! You can do this any time, just complete your run/walk by May 31, 2020.
Send us your results!
Send us your virtual results (use any app to track your miles/time) We’ll publish results so you can see how you stack up with other “committed soles” who are dedicated to ending poverty in our area.
We’ll send you your swag bag!
T-shirts, runners’ fanny pack, medals and other swag will be sent to you once we receive them from our supplier. Shirts and belts are guaranteed for registrations received by May 15. It’s our goal to have them to you by the end of May.
