Welcome to Kms4Care, our first virtual sporting event, which will kick off October 5, 2020.
For the month of October, participants are invited to run 35 km, or to swim, walk, wheel, or cycle its equivalent, to raise funds in support of the veterans, seniors, and adults with disabilities who live in our Care Homes.
Through this exciting new virtual event we can work together to raise funds to help the people who live and work in our Care Homes. Plus, there’s a range of exciting prizes to be won for meeting your goals for distance and fundraising, and for participating in our social media challenge!
What is involved?
Between October 5 and 31, you’re invited to join us by running 35 km, or swimming, walking, wheeling, or cycling its equivalent, and use your effort to raise funds in support of the veterans, seniors, and adults with disabilities who live in our Care Homes.
|Wheeling (being pushed)||18 km|
|Wheeling (race wheelchair)||53 km|
|Kids||1 km per week|
What are the prizes?
This year, the first 100 participants will receive a ‘medal’ — with a twist! This year, it is a pewter coaster consisting of a base and four puzzle pieces. Each of the pieces represents a different part of the Kms4Care event. You’ll receive the first piece simply for signing up.
You can earn the other three by:
- Meeting your distance goal;
- Meeting your fundraising goal; and,
- Participating in all four social media challenges (Note: if you don’t have social media accounts — Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter — you can also submit photos by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org).
How do I sign up?
Registration is $25 per person, and you sign up to participate through Canada Helps. As part of the signup process, you’ll be asked to create your personal fundraising page.
