#TeamSparkle Virtual 5k 2018 (Race Bib and Medal)
All profits will be donated to Girl Power 2 Cure
#teamsparkle is running the Boston Marathon in order to raise awareness & money for Rett Syndrome & Girl Power 2 Cure. We’re calling it #Boston4Rett! This terrible disease has trapped close to half a million girls in their bodies, leaving them unable to speak, walk, or even use their hands. #teamsparkle is running because these girls can’t, but we believe someday they will!
On Marathon Monday (April 16, 2018), seven women will each be running 26.2 miles during the iconic Boston Marathon for a grand total of 189 miles for 189 girls with Rett Syndrome. But just because you aren’t running Boston with us doesn’t mean you can’t participate. This year we invite YOU to join #teamsparkle and participate in our #boston4rett journey by signing up for the #teamsparkle virtual 5k (& yes, all profits will be donated to Girl Power 2 Cure).
Participating is easy!
1. Sign up for the #teamsparkle virtual 5k. Registration is open NOW until we sell out.
2. Run/walk/roll at least 3.1 miles (5k) anytime between now and Monday, April 16th, 2018. However, we’d suggest you complete the 5k near the date we are running the Boston Marathon (April 16th). YOU will be receiving a real, actual race bib AND a beautiful, sparkly, die cast, 2018 unicorn #teamsparkle medal the week of April 2nd.
3. Share your pictures with the rest of #teamsparkle on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using the hashtags #boston4rett and #teamsparkle. Post pics of your #flatsparkle (the clothes & gear you are rocking), your medal, your run, and anything else you want to share. Although you may be racing virtually, by posting your pics to our Facebook page, or using the hashtags on Instagram & Twitter – we can cheer everyone on!
YOU will be receiving a real, actual race bib AND a beautiful, sparkly, die cast, 2018 unicorn #teamsparkle medal the week of April 2nd.
