Wreaths Across America to Kick Off 5K Race Series with Virtual Race in Texas

Wreaths Across America to Kick Off 5K Race Series with Virtual Race in Texas

Run to remember from the safety of your own course, while supporting the local community effort to place veterans' wreaths this December.

PR Newswire

COLLEGE STATION, Texas, April 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, national nonprofit Wreaths Across America (WAA) announces the kick off to its 2020 Stem to Stone Race Tour. The first event will take place VIRTUALLY with a 5K in Texas on Sunday, April 19. The series, which is in partnership with event management and timing company CompetitorME, was announced earlier this year and features eight 5K road races throughout the year. Due to COVID-19, and the CDC's recommendation for large gatherings, this race has been moved to a VIRTUAL event.

Registration for virtual participation will be open until Friday, April 10 at 10:59 pm CDT. To register, please visit www.competitorme.com/wreaths-across-america or click here.

"The goal of this race series is to build community awareness and understanding of the organization's yearlong mission to Remember, Honor, Teach," said Karen Worcester, executive director, Wreaths Across America. "However, in light of the current health crisis, we feel these races have taken on even more meaning by providing the opportunity for people to safely participate in something healthy and fun, while supporting and giving back in their own community during this uncertain time."

As such, each individual virtual race registrant can designate a local WAA sponsorship group, such as Health for All (WAA ID: TX0494p) during check out, which will provide $5 back of each $15 wreath sponsored to this community-based free clinic. Virtual registration also sponsors a fresh balsam veteran's wreath that will be placed on the headstone of an American hero on December 19, 2020, as part of National Wreaths Across America Day at a participating WAA location, including College Station, Bryan and Brazos Valley Cemeteries.

Virtual participants will receive personalized racing bibs and commemorative finisher medallions, with event t-shirts being provided to the first 200 people to register, via the mail before race day!
