BGCM Boundless Virtual Race
May 23 - May 24$25
We hope you will join us for our BGCM Boundless Virtual Walk/Run May 23rd – 24th, where all proceeds will go towards the critical work we are doing in the community right now during this pandemic. This virtual race is one that can be done at any location. You can walk/run your race on either May 23rd or 24th, wherever you’d like, whatever distance you choose. Don’t have safe space to exercise? Treadmills are fair game, as well as running laps inside of your home or around your yard! The more creative you get, the better. Please remember social distancing guidelines during your training and on race day.
WHY RUN FOR BGCM?
Amid the coronavirus outbreak, Boys & Girls Clubs of Monmouth County is continuing to provide much-needed services to our kids, which they heavily rely on. Since March, we have provided over 5,000 grab-and-go meals to our members and their families. And while our Clubhouses have been forced to close due to the crisis, BGCM has pivoted to a virtual Club called BGCM Boundless. With the help of technology, community partners, and our dedicated staff, we are bringing enrichment, support, and mentorship to our kids in this unprecedented time. It costs $200 to provide a week’s worth of virtual programming for just one child. By participating in this virtual race, you can make sure that our kids continue to feel safe, connected, and engaged with their community. You will be making a real difference…from your own neighborhood!
HOW IT WORKS:
There is a $25 registration fee per person upon signup. You can participate as an individual or as a team.

We want you to use this BGCM Boundless Virtual Run Facebook event page to post your training and race-day pics, as well as your accomplished time and distance, so we can celebrate you and your team!
