Thank you to our participants and sponsors for helping us raise over $15,000 in support of our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women. Our participants ran/walked over 400 miles, collectively!
We invite members of the Mercer county community and beyond to run, walk, raise funds, and have fun at our first-ever Stand Against Racism Virtual Run/Walk! The funds raised will support our programs and services, which are designed in service of our mission – to Eliminate Racism and Empower Women. Our year-round racial justice work also includes education and advocacy–click here to learn more about our work, and how you can get involved.
Participants will have a minimum fundraising goal of $100.

When can I start fundraising?
As soon as you register!
Is there a set distance?
You choose. 1k, 5k, more? Set a challenge for yourself!
What is the cost/registration fee?
There is a minimum fundraising goal of $100. Upon registering you will get your own fundraising page. Upon registering, you will be asked for a credit card, which will be charged for the balance of funds not raised on the last day (August 10th).
Can I participate with a team?
Each registrant has a fundraising goal of $100, but you can form a team with a friends, family, coworkers, etc. While the team can create a collective goal, each team member will still have a minimum fundraising goal of $100. The team that raises the most will win an award!
When is it? And why are there multiple dates?
Walking/ Running can take place any time from Monday July 27th – Monday August 10th. You can enter your distance all at once or on multiple days. The run/walk takes place over multiple days to give participants more time to run, walk, raise funds, and have fun! This also accounts for fluctuations in temperature and weather.
Will there be medals/awards?
Top fundraisers will receive awards. A virtual awards ceremony will be held Tuesday, August 11th. Registrants will receive a link by email. Runners/walkers will receive a complimentary t-shirt!
