HETEROTAXY CONNECTION AnyWay5K
Welcome to the Any Way 5K 2019 Race and Fundraiser Page! Below you will find all the information you need to get started!
WHAT: A 5K “race” that you can complete almost any way you would like. In the same way that the bodies of those with Hetertoaxy have formed in any way possible, we can honor them by participating in any way we possibly can. We just ask that you complete your 5K and report your results by the deadlines (see below).
This is also a fundraiser! Participants will have the opportunity to contribute to an amazing (and tax deductible) cause. Your fundraising efforts will be rewarded with wonderful tiered incentives (see below).
HOW: Acceptable ways to participate: Walking, running, cycling, hiking, swimming, wheelchair, skating (wheels or ice), skiing, etc. As long as your forward motion is powered by your own body. The distance may be covered all at once, or broken up into smaller increments and then added together.
Unacceptable ways to participate: Any motorized vehicle (unless you are wheelchair bound and require a motorized chair) such as a car, motorized/electric scooter, train, etc. Also, only activities occurring within the stated timeline will count toward true participation.
