***The Occoquan Historical Society has decided to use any proceeds it receives
to purchase gift cards/certificates from Town business to raffle off at later fundraisers.***
As a means of encouraging healthy outdoor activity, supporting Town businesses, and assisting local nonprofit organizations during the difficult times of the COVID-19 pandemic, Occoquan is sponsoring a “virtual” 5K through June 14. All of the gross proceeds from the virtual 5K will go to the Occoquan Historical Society, the Good News Community Kitchen, and VFW Post 7916.
To participate in the virtual 5K individuals register online and then walk, run, hike, bike, kayak, canoe, or SUP a distance of 5K (3.1 miles) on their own anywhere, including on a treadmill in their home, sometime between now and 11:59 p.m. on June 14, 2020. Once a participant completes the event they go to the relevant link below to report the date, start time, and end time of their run/walk. If able, participants should upload a legible screenshot of a GPS or equivalently-tracked recording of their effort when uploading results. All registered participants who complete the event will receive an event t-shirt. As part of the registration process all participants will also be asked to commit to making a good-faith effort to order online or by phone a gift card or curbside, pickup-to-go service from an Occoquan business.
Registration for the Occoquan “Virtual” 5K is $25 and includes the event t-shirt, which will be available a few weeks after the event.
