JA 4.01 Fundraiser Run/Walk/Bike
Dear Supporters of Junior Achievement,
As you know, the COVID-19 virus has had a major impact in our community, and it has changed the lives of millions of people around the world. Here at Junior Achievement, we have always done our very best to support students and teachers, and now those needs are greater than ever. During this pandemic, we have had an increase in requests for our help while at the same time we've had to cancel most of our traditional fundraising events. So we need to raise funds to continue our mission.
We have launched a virtual race event called the JA 4.01k Financial Fitness Race and have partnered with an industry leader in race services to make it possible for you to easily participate. A virtual race does not have a specific location or starting time. Instead, you run or walk in your own neighborhood or on a treadmill any time before the race "ends" on May 31, 2020. After you have finished, you upload your results so that you are recognized for your accomplishment. Our partner, ITS Your Race, is even offering a FREE app that you can download for tracking your walk or run. It's a great way to stay active while still observing social distancing guidelines and also supporting Junior Achievement!
The RunnersStayStrong virtual race program is helping charities all across North America host races on its virtual race platform so your supporters and you can walk, jog, or run to help us raise funds. You register online for the event. The donation for each registration is only $10 and JA in SEMO will receive the entire amount. You can also choose to purchase a souvenir package that includes a t-shirt, race bib, and wristband showing your support.
Even if you do not want to walk or run, you can still sign up and help support our mission here at Junior Achievement.
We hope that you will join us for the JA 4.01k Financial Fitness Race and help support our mission to empower young people to own their economic success. Your $10 will go a long way in helping teachers, students, and families in our area!
