#teamsparkle virtual 5k

February 1, 2017 by The Girls

 

#teamsparkle is running the So Cal Ragnar in order to raise awareness & money for Rett Syndrome & Girl Power 2 Cure (a non-profit dedicated to finding a cure for Rett Syndrome). 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!

We will be running 200 miles for 200 girls during our #ragnar4rett adventure. But just because you aren’t running Ragnar with us doesn’t mean you can’t participate… join #teamsparkle and participate in our #ragnar4rett journey by signing up for the #teamsparkle virtual 5k (& yes, ALL profits will be donated to Girl Power 2 Cure).

This year we have THREE different race options to choose from:
