Virtual 5K Race Information

Information on the Virtual Fun Bun Run 5K Walk/Run

We look forward to your participation in the virtual component of our 5K. This is our second year with a virtual component and participants last year had a great experience, A virtual option allows us to accomplish two things:

It expands the number of people who can help us support education in rural Haiti by making it possible for people living anywhere in the world to participate.

It allows us to include people who given the uncertainty of the pandemic want an alternate way to participate as a family or individual.
