Yours Humanly 2019 Break a Sweat for Education 5K Run & Walk, Kids Fun Run. October 5 event at Heather Farm Park, Walnut Creek, will fund local, global educational programs and resources for underprivileged children.
The 2019 Yours Humanly Break a Sweat for Education® 5K Run & Walk and FREE Kids Fun Run, will be held Saturday, October 5, at Walnut Creek's Heather Farm Park. Funds raised by this popular family-friendly event—now in its fifth year—support the local and global programs of Yours Humanly, an East Bay nonprofit that provides underprivileged children in underserved communities access to educational programs and resources.
Yours Humanly is again partnering with MDUSD Education Foundation, with part of the proceeds directly benefiting students and schools in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District. 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. Returning is the Virtual 5K, in which supporters register online as virtual participants, running or walking their own 5K course if they don't live in the area or can't make the October 5 event.
Registrants will pick up their race packets on Friday, October 4, 3-7pm, at Road Runner Sports, 1975 Diamond Blvd, Concord. The day of the race: check-in, 7:30am; Kids Fun Run, 8:45am; 5K Run & Walk, 9am; awards & raffle end by 10:30am. The Northgate High School Madrigals will open the event with the National Anthem sung a cappella.
