    Date: August 15, 2020 Location: Virtual

    We are excited to announce that this year's Heart and Sole 5K will be a nationwide virtual race benefiting Conquering CHD! Having a virtual 5K means anyone, from anywhere, can sign up, and support Conquering CHD. We really feel we can make a huge impact, even from home! What is a Virtual 5K you ask? Well, it is a race you sign up for online, we will send you a Heart and Sole event t-shirt, and instead of gathering at one place to participate, you run or walk the 5K wherever you would like. It can be in your neighborhood, on a trail, up a mountain, or on a treadmill! You pick! So get your team together, start your fundraising and get ready to cross the virtual finish line with us on August 15th-16th! We #5KBecause of CHD!

The event will last for approximately one hour and will consist of six rounds ranging from general trivia to heart anatomy to TV show theme songs. Here’s how to play: 1. Click the link below to sign up. You’ll be asked to provide your team name and your email address. Please sign up no later than June 18. 2. On the morning of June 19, watch for an email from ohio@conqueringchd.org for detailed instructions, the answer forms, and a link to the event! During the Facebook Live event, you’ll fill out one answer form for each round. Because of this, it will be easiest with two electronic devices (one to watch on, one to submit answers on). 3. Prizes in the form of Conquering CHD swag will be awarded for the top three teams as well as the team with the best name. Depending on the number of participating teams, scores will be announced at the end of the event or immediately after. 4. OPTIONAL: If you are able to make a donation for this fundraising event, we have both paypal and venmo accounts set up. The suggested donation amount is $10. Funds raised will go toward meal cards for inpatient families as well as modified social events later in the year (pending COVID-19). PayPal: paypal.me/pchaohio Venmo: @pchaohio 5. OPTIONAL: If you wish to form a virtual team as opposed to playing with members of your household, we recommend setting up a Zoom (or similar) meeting and doing a screenshare of the Facebook Live.
