Thank you to all those who ran or walked virtually, made a donation, or sponsored the race! Your support provides the women and children who walk through the doors of Abby’s House with safe shelter, affordable, supportive housing, and advocacy programs that help them create lives filled with dignity and hope!
You are among 377 participants from a total of 17 states and 2 countries who committed to walking or running #FiveToHelpHerThrive – thank you!
Before you get out and complete your 3.1 miles we’d like to share some important information:
Finishing times will be entered using the “honor system”. You can submit your individual results beginning on Wednesday, October 13th by clicking here. In order to be considered for a top finisher award you must submit your time no later than 9 a.m. on Saturday, October 16, 2021.
You can track your time and miles and share your 3.1 mile course by using the Strava, Garmin, or MapMyRun apps. You can also track your time/miles by using an Apple Watch, FitBit or other fitness device. You will receive a virtual bib directly from Racewire which you can print and wear while you complete your 5K. This bib number will be needed in order to submit your results. If you did not receive a virtual bib please let us know. We’ll share the final Racewire results page on Saturday, October 16th. *Please note that submitting your results is optional.
While we have to stay physically apart, we want to be as connected to you as possible! Tag us in your social media posts @abbyshouse1976 about this year’s virtual race, tell us why you’re participating, and send us pictures or video of you/your team completing your #FiveToHelpHerThrive! You can also send your photos to us at .
