As mentioned above, May is "Move More Month". In that spirit, we will be launching a new virtual fundraiser! Introducing "disAbiity Connections' Run, Walk, or Roll". May 21st - June 7th we are asking people to join in supporting our programs and services while committing to healthy eating and being more active. Ending after national Donut Day when we celebrate our success.
Rather than your standard 5k, in the dC Run, Walk, or Roll, the participants set their own activity and healthy eating goals based on their individual ability and circumstances. Like many other people, you may already be saying "Yeah right! I can't do a 5k." No worries!! Just like people with disabilities do every day, you'll be taking the 5k idea and adjusting it to your own body needs and ability. Examples could be:
- Take "X" steps/miles in a day/week.
- "X" trips up and down the driveway.
- Eating # veggies/fruits each day.
- Drink ## ounces of water a day.
- Run, walk, or roll # of 5k's between May 21 - June 7
We suggest goals that are achievable but also require effort. Then, sharing those goals among friends and family for personal support and using our platform to showcase your efforts toward your health and fundraising goals.
Look for your special email invite and further details to be coming soon.
