Exercise and Do Good at the October 15th Thrive 5KOctober 1, 2022 –
Get a jump start on your Thanksgiving philanthropy this year at the VIDA Thrive 5K. By simply lacing up your sneakers and taking part, you’ll actually be making the D.C. region a better place. That’s because the annual run raises funds for Thrive DC, an organization designed to eliminate homelessness in the city by providing the services that unhoused community members need.
On Saturday, October 15th, the 8th annual installment of the race is slated to take place at Rock Creek Tennis Stadium. Join the flock of runners and walkers without worrying about your exact fitness level. From seasoned athletes to parents walking with baby strollers, the 5K welcomes anyone interested in enjoying the fresh autumn air and making a positive impact on their community. Register online as an individual ($35) or with a team (also $35 per member) and start training for race day. Then on October 15th, come to the stadium bright and early to pick up your packet, drop off your bag, and stretch it out before the 5K begins at 8 a.m.
