Blossom's 5k Virtual Walk
Exciting 5K Update!
Thanks to 51 walkers and donors, Blossom raised $1,770 in our first ever 5K virtual walk FUNdraiser.
A special shout out goes to our sponsors Palo Alto Recreation Foundation and EarthBaby without whom we could not have achieved as much success. EarthBaby also donated a prize package worth $100 and prize donor Sports Basement graciously contributed "Basement Bucks" gifts totaling $225!
Our event officially ended on Mother's Day. Check out our success stats and pics of our walkers and runners!
What is a virtual walk?
We can't hold an in-person fundraising walk so we're going virtual. A virtual walk is a commitment that you make to yourself to walk, run or roll/stroll a set distance. Your stroller walks, family hikes, neighborhood walks with your dog, your treadmill steps--THEY ALL COUNT!
How do I tell Blossom when I'm done my 5K?
Your participation is an honor system. Proof of walk completion is not required but we encourage you to:
What will I receive?
Each 5K registrant receives :
1. A transferable e-gift courtesy of our sponsor, EarthBaby, a compostable diapering service company:
A 4-week trial including a free pack of diapers and wipes *must be a new customer
2. An exclusive e-coupon from prize donor Sports Basement:
Save 20% off your 1-time purchase * | Basementeers save 28% !*
Am I required to pick up a walk number and fandana?
Once you register, you can pick up a Blossom walk number bib and fandana at Sports Basement Redwood City while supplies last through May 10th. Check their website for hours. Although NOT required to have for your walk, the bibs were inspirational for many of our walkers, including first time 5K'ers and current/former runners!
Is my registration fee tax-deductible?
Yes, when you register, you'll automatically receive a tax receipt.
Can I just donate instead of walking?
Yes! If you can't participate in the walk but want to support Blossom, click Donate instead of Register. We appreciate your support.
