Kinder than Necessary Virtual 5K 2021

EVENT DATE: January 24-31

The past year has been difficult and we could all use a little bit of kindness.  The Rutland High School Class of 2023 and BROC Community Action have teamed up to bring you the 2021 Kinder than Necessary Virtual 5K.  You can participate and support BROC Community Action and RHS Class of 2023 from anywhere in the world .


WHAT IS THE KINDER THAN NECESSARY VIRTUAL 5K?

The Kinder than Necessary Virtual 5K runs through the entire last week of January (24th-31st).  Register before the last day of the event and join us by completing your 5K from anywhere in the world.  You can run, walk, snowshoe, or hike the 5K and you can complete it all at once or over several days during the event week.  When you register you will receive a printable bib that you can sport when you put in your miles.  You will also be mailed a super-cool race sticker to put on your water bottle, car, or notebook, so that everyone will know that you are Kinder than Necessary.


The week of the race, you will receive a daily Kindness Email that will lift your spirits and help to spread kindness throughout our community.  When you complete the 5K, post a photo or video of yourself in your bib with the hashtag #KinderThanNecessary5K.  If you want, include your time and race location with your photo!


Sign up today to help these two organizations bring much needed funds and morale to our community. All funds are split 50/50 between RHS Class of 2023 and BROC Community Action.

Story

The Rutland High School Class of 2023 feels strongly that young people should be involved in community service.  Over the past nine months, many community members and organizations have struggled financially due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.  While the students have a need to fundraise for their class senior trip, they also acknowledge that there are many in the community in need as well.    


BROC Community Action is an organization in the Rutland Region that has a long history of providing a wide range of services and support for families in crisis and poverty.  They too have suffered losses in funding during the past nine months.    


Therefore, the Rutland High School Class of 2023 and BROC Community Action have teamed up to bring the first annual Kinder than Necessary Virtual 5k! 

Sign up today to help these two orginazations bring much needed funds and morale to our community. All funds are split 50/50 between RHS class of 2023 and BROC Community Action.
