Yours Humanly Break a Sweat for Education Run & Walk, Presented by Capital One Café
October 18–31 event—now virtual—benefits children in need around the world
By: Yours Humanly
This year, the 6th annual Yours Humanly run/walk fundraiser, presented by Capital One Café, is 100% virtual, being held October 18–October 31. This means that participants can run, walk, hike, or move in any way they'd like, any distance, anywhere in the world. More than an athletic event, Break a Sweat for Education is a fundraiser for education and a fun way for people to help children in need receive the education they deserve. No matter the distance or form of locomotion, supporters will be making a difference in the lives of children.
Proceeds will help Yours Humanly provide the distance learning technologies so desperately needed by underserved students who are currently learning remotely. And later, as teachers and students move through recovery and back to classrooms, financial support will help Yours Humanly create safe and productive school experiences for the children. This year, Yours Humanly has partnered with the Mt. Diablo Unified School District (MDUSD) Education Foundation and part of the proceeds will directly benefit MDUSD students.
"We truly change lives when we educate children, and the impact of that education reaches far beyond city, village, state, and national borders as educated children grow up to be leaders, innovators, and contributing members of society," says Sunny Singh, Yours Humanly founder & CEO. "This fundraising event rewards people on so many levels, and we welcome all to join us on this journey to help children achieve better, brighter futures."
