The 2020 1-Mile Family Fun Run/Walk will be held virtually. What does that mean? It is still a kid-friendly 1-mile walk/run, but all registered participants will run/walk a 1-mile route in their own neighborhood between March 28 and April 4 and share results online with the Esperanza community on the Esperanza 5K Facebook page, on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #esperanza5k. The hand painted Esperanza medals so many of us have come to love (and collect) will be awarded to all finishers who post, just as if we ran the race together in person. We will email after the virtual Esperanza concludes to let finishers know medal pick-up details.
As always, all proceeds support Juntos Servimos and the Casa Bugambilia Center in Matamoros, Mexico. These are challenging times for everyone. Our friends at Casa Bugambilia continue to provide a compassionate response to medically fragile residents as well as the more than 50 refugee guests. Like us, they are now facing the added challenge of Covid-19. Your support, by participating in Esperanza and through donations is needed now more than ever.
