PHRC Launches Virtual Run to Support Three Fandom Charities
The "Slug Club Armchair to 5k" virtual event to benefit three non-profit groups inspired by the Harry Potter fandom
A virtual run, also known as a virtual race, is an event that can be run in any location, at any time, at any pace. Participants can walk, jog, or run; use the treadmill, hit the road, sidewalk, or trail; they will receive a finisher's medal, ribbon, and runner's bib for their donation.
Proceeds from all registrations will be distributed to the three charity partners to fund their efforts to improve the "muggle" world in ways inspired by their common love for the magical book and film series.
