2020 has been a year unlike any other with social distancing and restrictions on large gatherings and all sporting events canceled and we’d like your help in putting that behind us & moving forward! We are looking for runners who are motivated to kick off the 2021 running season and support Almost Home Kids at the same time! The 2021 Shamrock Shuffle is still on with a virtual twist.
The race weekend will kick off on Friday, March 19th and culminate on Sunday, March 21st with runners (or walkers) competing with friends & family in virtual races. (8K or 2-mile walk) in your own neighborhood across the city or even in different states.
Anyone can join our AHK team! Just click here!
We are encouraging you to register for the run on the Bank of America website and we are asking you to challenge your network to get excited for your & support your run with donations that will go to support the Almost Home Mission.
We ask each runner to set a goal to raise $100 as a donation. Everyone that joins the AHK team and raises a minimum of $40 will receive a dry-fit running short sleeve shirt. We need to hear from you soon to get your size so we can mail your shirt!
We are encouraging our runners to run a virtual race and take a photo of themselves in their AHK running shirt to help make a difference through their fundraising efforts. Whether it’s the treadmill or on the lakefront (at a safe distance from everyone else), we hope to bring you a new type of team photo! Photo above is from pre-COVID-19 days!
