Run for Camp 5K VIRTUAL Run & Walk
benefiting the scholarship funds at Camp Henry.
Saturday, October 17 - Sunday, October 18, 2020
Camp Henry is raising money to send kiddos to camp. Camp has a long history and major commitment to making a summer camp experience accessible to all children and families – regardless of their ability to pay. Over the past ten years we have provided over $1 million in scholarship assistance to make summer camp a reality for families in financial need. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to benefit from an amazing, positive, loving, fun-filled, and life changing Christian camping experience.
Cost: $20 per person
The 2020 Run for Camp 5K has gone VIRTUAL! You choose the place to rock your 3.1 miles. Need to take breaks during your walk? No problem! Trying to break your personal record? Great! You decide and once you have completed it, submit your time on this webpage to let us know you have finished.
Here's how to get started with the virtual race:
- Register to run or walk for the event here. A custom Camp Henry Cooling Neck Gaiter will be mailed after you register.
- Fundraise! Share on Social Media and invite your friends and family to donate to your fundraising page to earn camp swag - and get more kids to camp. See more below.
- October 17-18: hit your course or use a treadmill and submit your time.
- Awards will be given for the 5K Run to the top man & woman overall, plus the top male and female finisher in each age group (10 & under, 11-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+).
- Camp Henry will hold a swag and award pickup day once the race is over. Can't make it or from out of town? No worries, we will mail it to you.
Make it Fun: Wear a costume. Run with your dog. Make it a family event. This could be PE for all you virtual homeschoolers. Share with us your experience once you're done and upload your photos.
Camp Swag: Each registered walker/runner will get a custom Camp Henry Cooling Neck Gaiter. Gaiters will be mailed after registration.
Fundraiser Camp Swag: Each participant automatically becomes a Fundraiser for Camp. Our hope is that each participant can raise at least $100. Some may be able to raise $1,000 or more. The more money we can raise, the more kids we can get into camp. Don't want to participate in the 5k? That's ok - you can become a fundraiser without walking or running to earn swag - and get more kids to camp. Every dollar raised will go toward the Camp Henry Summer Scholarship Fund. Do it for the kids!
The more you raise, the more swag you earn - and more kids get to go to camp.
