Now that Thanksgiving is over and we’re all stuffed to the gills with arguably the best food of the entire year, you may be looking for some ideas for exercise.
Virtual races are a popular option for people looking to log miles, earn rewards, and experience the camaraderie of running a race when an in-person race isn’t an option. Now you can do all that and raise money for a good cause by participating in my Jingle Jog Virtual 5K!
The great thing about a virtual race is that you can do it on your own time, at your own pace, from any location. For the Jingle Jog 5K, you don’t even have to jog! Run or walk (or some combination) your 5K and earn a sweet medal.
You’ll also get a printable race bib when you sign up, perfect for those Instagram-worthy race photos everyone loves (admit it).
All proceeds for the 5K will benefit the BIDMC Annual Fund through my fundraising for the Boston Marathon. All you have to do is make a donation of $25 or more through my fundraising website and then email me with your registration details.
- Name used to make donation
- Name as it should appear on race bib
- Instagram handle (if applicable)
- Twitter handle (if applicable)
If for some crazy reason you don’t want a sweet finisher’s medal, tell me that in the email too. While not required, I would love for you to share photos from your run or walk using the hashtags #virtualjinglejog and #BIDMC.
Fundraising for Beth Israel is really personal to me and if you haven’t read that story yet, feel free to read it here. The Annual Fund helps support continuing education, research, academic and teaching programs, and annual operating costs. All of this helps ensure that everyone who seeks treatment of any kind at Beth Israel receives top notch care.
If you or a friend are interested in participating in the 5K, but would like to make your donation another way, please contact me and let me know. We’ll figure something out.
Spread the word! Recruit your friends and family members to run or walk with you and help me reach my fundraising goal for Beth Israel.
