Registration Open for BROADWAY CARES VIRTUAL 5K
Join theater artists and fans from across the country for the Broadway Cares Virtual 5K. Virtually join forces with Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS to ease on down the road by running, walking, hiking or biking to make a lifesaving difference for those in need. Registration opens today, July 8, 2021.
The Broadway Cares Virtual 5Kcan be completed anywhere and at your own pace. You can run, walk, hike, bike, leap or jeté through your personal 3.1-mile journey. Exchange your character shoes for running shoes as you head toward the finish line - right from your own neighborhood, home gym or wherever you choose to participate. Complete the course over multiple days or run and tell that all at once - it’s completely up to you.
Start your strut down the street by heading to broadwaycares.org/virtual5K.
You can participate as an individual or in a group of fellow Broadway champions. The festivities kick into high gear July 27 with a Zoom party for all fundraisers before a show-stopping weekend of movement August 14 and 15.
Everyone participating in the Broadway Cares Virtual 5K will fundraise to help those across the country affected by HIV/AIDS, COVID-19 and other critical illnesses receive meals and medication, health care and hope.
No matter if you are a runner, walker, hiker, biker or “singer who moves well,” the Broadway Cares Virtual 5K is sure to bring a touch of Broadway to your neck of the woods and put meaning in every little step you take.
