By: Yours Humanly
There is also a virtual component for people who want to support Yours Humanly, but who don't live in the area or can't make the October 2 event. Supporters register online as virtual participants, then run or walk their own 5K course wherever they happen to be.
Trophies for the chip-timed 5K run are awarded to the top three overall male and female 5K run finishers, and to the first place male and female 5K run finishers in eight age groups.
All in-person and virtual 5K registrants receive an event t-shirt and finisher medal, and Kids Fun Run registrants (age 10 and younger) receive a kid's finisher medal with an option to purchase an event t-shirt during registration.
More than an athletic event, however, Break a Sweat for Education 5K Run & Walk and Kids Fun Run is a fundraiser for education and a fun way for people to help children in need receive the education they deserve and make a difference in their lives.
"Our 7th annual Break a Sweat for Education 5K Run & Walk is an excellent opportunity for individuals, families, and friends to help raise money and awareness for a great cause," says Sunny Singh, Yours Humanly Founder & CEO. "This is a great way to spend a Saturday morning!"
Heather Farm Park is located at 301 N. San Carlos Dr, Walnut Creek, California.
