Sunday, August 30
After careful consideration and in light of the ever-evolving landscape surrounding COVID-19, we have made the decision to transition the 2020 RBC Race for the Kids Seattle event on Sunday, August 30, 2020 to a virtual one. The onsite celebration is at the heart of RBC Race for the Kids, and the decision to cancel the physical event wasn’t made lightly. However, the health and safety of participants, staff and volunteers is our top priority.
The virtual event has been designed to promote fun, deepen connections, and support ongoing physical and mental wellness for you and your family during these unprecedented times. So, if you’re looking for a way to engage your community and support Boyer families, here’s how you can get involved.
We can still make a difference for Boyer families.
Since we can’t participate in a run/walk/roll physically, we’ve launched a month-long digital race that ends with a virtual celebration on Sunday, August 30th. And we’ve got some incredible supporters — from Boyer staff, to professional athletes to health care experts — who will be coming along with us in August to help inspire and engage you.
So, here’s how it works: Sign up here, and every week in August, keep an eye out for our email series that will share a calendar filled with ways to practice mental wellness and safely get your steps in with your family. The challenge? Use these activities as inspiration throughout the month of August as you do your best each day to get your daily steps in. Have some fun with it and be creative in how you strive to be your healthiest self.
Think of us as your fundraising coaches, too—as each participant will be given a fundraising page that you can share through your social media channels to boost your virtual fundraising efforts.
Be sure to film how you’re hitting your goals—and don’t forget to tag us on social media on Boyer’s Facebook, @boyerchildrensclinic @rbc #RBCRacefortheKidsSeattle as you work on your daily challenges!
It goes without saying that we are facing unprecedented times that are full of uncertainty. But what remains certain is that you—our incredible supporters—are the reason we can take on many of the greatest challenges that face us. During this time when your generosity matters more than ever, we thank you for everything you do.
