Theatre fans and fitness buffs looking for a reason to get outside will get the opportunity to combine their interests June 13–14 during the first-ever Broadway Cares Virtual 5K.
The non-competitive sporting fundraiser can be completed anywhere, on socially distanced streets and trails, or even in living rooms. There is no fee to register, although each participant has a suggested minimum fundraising goal of $250.
Participants can run, walk, hike, bike, leap, or even jeté to reach the distance goal. Anyone venturing outdoors is encouraged to wear protective face masks, remain at least six feet apart from others, and follow all local health and safety directives.
The fundraising benefits Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, helping those affected by COVID-19, HIV/AIDS, and other life-threatening illnesses. The proceeds will provide lifesaving medications, nutritious meals, emergency financial assistance, and more to those who need it most.
