New Providence, NJ (April 20, 2020)— Our House has announced their 21st annual Our House, Our Run will go virtual this year. The event will kick off at 9:45 AM on May 16th and be open to participants through May 23rd 8 PM. As a virtual event each participant chooses a course to run or walk on the day and time of their choice (within the window stated above).
“In response to the current physical distancing requirements our staff has pivoted this longstanding community fundraising event to a virtual platform.” says VP of Development, Cathy Colford, “We know this is the responsible thing to do and this change allows us the opportunity to still raise funds to support adults with disabilities.”
All the details on how to register, create a team or become a sponsor can be found at www.ourhouseourrun.org . All the proceeds will support the programs and services provided to adults with disabilities by Our House.
There will be a variety of informative videos shared throughout the week of the event, including some Facebook live sessions and giveaways. Everyone who registers by April 30th is guaranteed to receive a tee shirt to commemorate this 21st (and 1st) annual virtual run before the event kick-off on May 16th, thereafter registrants will receive a tee shirt while supplies last.
