Cinco K Virtual 5K
Cinco K 2022 - Virtual 5K bannerWalk, jog or run for a great cause!
Anyone who registers for our virtual 5K, fundraises, or donates will be helping victims/survivors of domestic abuse. https://www.raceentry.com/cinco-k/race-information
What's a Virtual 5K?
It's a 5K that you can complete any time you choose between Sunday, May 1st through Saturday, May 7th. It's virtual because you can complete it anywhere, at a gym or at home or outdoors.
You can use a fitness tracker, an app on your phone, or any method you prefer to track the distance you're walking or running. We won't ask you for proof, so this would be mostly for you, but you can share it with us via social media, on facebook, twitter, or flickr.
After your 5K run or walk, you have the option to upload a photo of your results through the RaceEntry dashboard. This is entirely optional. Regardless of whether you do this or not, everyone who registers will receive a digital certificate of participation.
Each participant will receive:
a Cinco-K 2022: "Love=Kindness" t-shirt (soft heather, royal blue) -- Please note: you will only receive a t-shirt if you choose a registration option that includes a t-shirt.
a digital Bib
a digital Certificate of Participation
an entry to 3 Gift Basket drawings
emails with tips, virtual playlists, and more.
There will be three drawings from everyone who registers, so there will be three Cinco K basket winners. If you are wondering what the baskets will have, here's a sneak peek: our adventure-themed basket will include a Lake Geneva Zip Lines and Adventures certificate!
Can't do the virtual 5K but want to help us fundraise?
Like other years, all are welcome to create a fundraising team or make a donation of any size to HOPE through our Cinco K fundraising page.
Cinco K is HOPE of Ogle County's only annual fundraiser. Our virtual 5K is called Cinco K because it happens during the week of Cinco de Mayo. All proceeds go to support HOPE of Ogle County, a domestic violence agency and shelter, and the life-changing services that we provide to adults, teens, and children throughout the county.
HOPE of Ogle County provides shelter services, counseling services for adults, teens, and children, court advocacy, and advocacy for Latino/Hispanic survivors. All our services are free of charge.
HOPE's mission is to advocate on behalf of domestic violence victims and their children in a welcoming environment. Our caring professionals provide safety planning, support, shelter, and referrals while empowering survivors to build a safe and peaceful future.
