Here are some quick updates for our Lights for Life Virtual 5K participants:
All participants that chose shipping, your bags were mailed on Friday and our hope is that you will get them early next week.
Thanks to all that braved the California cold to pick-up bags Friday night at our drive up bag pick up. It was so great to see you all—at a safe social distance!
Our shirt designer had to order a second box of our shirts due to a shipping issues, so we have the opportunity to order more race shirts if anyone is interested. The shirts are $10 and if you want us to ship them to you, no matter how many you order, the shipping cost will be a one time fee of $5. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the number and sizes of shirts you would like. They are really soft and very comfortable this year!
Finally, the whole reason we decided to continue on and do a virtual race in spite of COVID-19 is that we want to support our students with positive messages as they head off to winter break. We want them to know that there is hope and that they are NOT alone. To inspire your creativity, we created a “Let’s Light Up Social Media with Messages of Hope” Calendar with daily ideas of what you can do to flood social media with positive images and messages. Each day we will will remind participants of the daily theme by email and our social media feeds. Below is the calendar that you will see when you click “Let’s Light Up Social Media with Messages of Hope” link above:
