You may ask, "what is a virtual race?" A virtual race is a race that can be ran ANYWHERE at ANYTIME. You can walk around your neighborhood, a trail or track. Or you can use a treadmill at your house or at the gym. You can run/walk your race at your pace wherever you like. We encourage you to challenge yourself, challenge your friends and family members. Remember, it’s for a good cause.
Why is To Life! hosting this event? A race event channels the energy of breast cancer awareness month by challenging oneself, family and loved ones to walk or run. We make it fun by offering suggested hikes, footpaths and other venues to get out and move, all in the spirit of competition and the camaraderie that goes along with participating with fellow survivors/thrivers.
