Virtual 5K & Kids Fun Run - FluxFit Fundraiser

What We Are Doing:

On Saturday April 11th, join us in a Virtual 5K and Kids Fun Run as we continue to socially distance, together. Lace up your running shoes, grab your family and head outside to complete a Virtual 5K or Kids Fun Run, while others join in to complete it as well in their own community on the same day and time. This can be completed wherever you are located, and we hope to make this as widespread as possible as we work to promote physical and mental well being through this event. We are organizing this event to encourage you to stay active, get some fresh air, and help support a local new business while we whether these hard times together.

How It Works:

On April 11th, go out and complete your 5K (3.1 miles) or Kids Fun Run (1 mile) while using your Apple watch, fitness watch, or fitness app (we like Map My Run or Run Keeper – both free). Submit your time and proof of completion to us by 1PM EST on 4/11/20 by emailing a screen shot of your App or photo of your fitness watch to Alyssa@fluxfitct.com. Or you can also use Instagram or Facebook to tag us in your photos and completion screen @FluxFitCT and we will compile all race results to be posted on our social media channels, as well as email it out to all participants.

There is a suggested donation of $20 to participate. Anyone who donates will receive a gray FluxFit t-shirt to run in on race day. For anyone who is local, we will have curb side pick-up for shirts Thurs. 4/9 and Fri. 4/10 at our studio and will contact all donators directly with a time to pick it up. For anyone who is not local, we will mail these out by April 7th to ensure you have them for race day. Any donations that come in after April 7th will still receive a shirt, and we will do our best to get it to you for race day, but delivery by April 11th is not guaranteed.

Do you need additional activities to do with your kids? Let’s tap into those creative juices and have them design your own personal bib to wear on race day. We can’t wait to see the pictures!

Who We Are and Who This Supports:

FluxFit is a locally owned group fitness studio located in Danbury, CT. We opened our doors just 10 days before this unfortunate pandemic hit, and all donations will directly support our new business and all of our staff who continues to work hard to deliver you free fitness content, which just weeks earlier we were getting paid for. As have many others, the fitness community has been hit hard through this, with many out of jobs. If you have the means, our staff and business immensely appreciates your support, and these funds will ensure we can keep a full staff who we are so incredibly lucky to have and open our doors back up when this is all over even stronger than before. We appreciate you and ask that you continue to follow along with us as we grow our business and share this event to others who may be interested in participating. Let’s take a morning away from the stress, and get outside to move “together.”
