Ru(n95) Virtual 5K - June 26-28

Nebraska AANA Foundation Virtual Run/Walk

June 26 -28 - Any time that works best for you!

We know many of you are feeling the stress of events surrounding the Coronavirus. Exercise can help boost our mental state and physical health. So, in the spirit of social distancing and supporting our profession, we created a (socially) distanced virtual 5k run that will raise funds for the AANA Foundation

Want to join us? Here's how it works:

  • Register to complete the race - $25/person (+$10 for additional family members)
  • Run, jog, walk a 5k during the weekend of June 26th
  • Take a photo of yourself during or after your run/jog/walk (or share a screenshot of your watch or tracking app and share it online with the hashtag #crnarun95

What is a virtual run?

A virtual run allows you to run (or walk) from anywhere you choose, running at your own pace. Walk, run, jog, indoors on a track or treadmill or outside in the neighborhood or a park, a virtual run is a great way to be competitive with your family, friends, or coworkers while not traveling to a race.

How do virtual runs work?

Virtual runs are quite similar to a classic road race. The only difference is that there is no physical event happening and everyone wins! You can run in your hometown, street, park, treadmill, alone, with friends; however, you want! Same as a classic race event, there are three (or 4 if you purchase a t-shirt!) steps to participate:

  1. Register: Sign-up online and invite your friends to join! Every registration supports the AANA Foundation.
  2. Run (or walk): You can run anytime you want on June 26-28. You can run using your favorite running app wherever you want and at the time that best suits you! 
  3. Celebrate: You finished! Great job! During or after the run, take a selfie or have a friend take your photo and post it on social media using #crnarun95. If You can also take a photo or save a screenshot of your watch or tracking app for a proof of completion. Times do not matter, this event is all about supporting CRNAs and taking care of yourself!
  4. Showoff: For an additional $20 your AANA Nebraska Advocates will mail you a t-shirt specifically designed for Nebraska CRNAs, following the event.

We're fundraising for the AANA Foundation with a (socially) distanced virtual 5k run/walk! 

The AANA Foundation raises funds needed to focus on initiatives that meet its research and education mission, ensure efficiency, and provide the nurse anesthesia community with the necessary resources for furthering the profession.
