During this time of isolation and uncertainty, Hershey needs to come together now more than ever. Although we are unable to do so physically, we have found the next best way to support each other and the Hershey community. Join us in the Run For Hershey Virtual 5K! All proceeds raised will go directly to support small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in Downtown Hershey.
This race will be run as a virtual 5K. No, this does not mean another online meeting or time spent in front of the screen. Rather, it means getting out to walk, run, hike, bike, skip, even bunny hop a 5K on your own time by May 31st. Get out and explore a new trail or part of town using appropriate social distancing precautions. Don’t forget to take a picture or video of yourself participating and share your love of Hershey on social media using #RunForHersheyVirtual5K. The more love that is shared, the more money we will be able to raise, and therefore the more we will be able to support those small businesses that are so vital to our community.
For those with a competitive spirit, you have the option to self-track and record your time using this link once you’ve completed the race. Upload a photo of yourself at the bottom of the form to be featured on our social media! We will announce the fastest in various categories (age, gender, style of transportation) each week and maintain race results on our social media pages.
There is a $15 registration race donation fee with the opportunity to donate more.
Share the Hershey love using #RunForHersheyVirtual5K and tag us to be featured on our social media pages.
We are so thankful to have support from our sponsors. They will be matching your donations so that we can make a bigger, better impact on our community.
