We have been BLESSED to be employed by a company that puts it's people first. We've been able to find support and security during this unprecedent time. I feel moved to give back and help out those who were not as fortunate.
Our goal is to raise funds to sponser families who have not yet received stimulous checks, are having trouble claiming their unemployment or have been furloughed. The sponsored families will receive gifts based on needs in the form of either Amazon gift card, bill pay or grocieries hand delivered to their door.
In order to raise the funds DIF will be hosting a virtual social distance run/walk/crawl. You pick your distance (5k, 10k, half, 25k, or full marathong) and DIF will donate $1 per mile ran.
Running not your thing? That's ok, you can sponsor a runner's milage and DIF will MATCH your donation.
The race date is the weekend of June 5-7th. Any of those days you log your miles on any ap (I use map my run) screen shot the finish and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org (or text to your manager). The miles can be completed in any amount of time as long as they're consecutive and you are creating the motion of the vessel, this means nothing electric or with a motor.
If you are sponsoring someone, donate through the gofundme page and in the comment section write your name and who you are sponsoring. If you are a runner who has collected funds write your name in the comment section as well.
There will be prizes, a medal for the longest distance ran, T-shirt for most funds raised and a social distance face mask for the most "spirited" participant.
Please help us give back to our community and particiapte in this fun, healthy, innovative event.
