FOSTERING COMMUNITY BLOG
So you've seen us promoting our next fundraiser - a virtual race called Race for Wings - that's raising much-needed funds for children and families in foster care in Houston. You've heard that every dollar of our participants' registration fees will go towards emergency/urgent situations, Covid-19 relief, extracurricular activities, learning and enrichment, health and healing, and more.
But now you may be asking yourself... what exactly IS a "virtual" race?
Virtual races are similar to in-person races, but provide much more convenience and flexibility.⠀They allow participants to compete and support their favorite causes from a distance. Check out some of the perks of participating in a virtual race:
YOU CHOOSE YOUR OWN TIME AND PLACE
Skip the super early alarm, traffic jams and long lines! Simply complete the distance from the comfort of your own neighborhood, within the required schedule.
FOR ALL GOALS AND ABILITIES
Whether you're out to win first place, crush a personal record... or just planning to take the dog for a longer-than-usual walk, feel free to set your own pace and goal without worrying what other participants are doing.
EARN SOME NEW SWAG
Based on the event's registration types, you'll receive a T-shirt, medal, special prizes... or all of the above.
BREAK A SWEAT WHILE GIVING BACK
Virtual races make it really easy to still support hardworking nonprofits, even (and especially) in the midst of today's pandemic.
