A part of Generosity DC, the FACETS 5K Run/Walk will take place on June 23, 2019 in Arlington's Bluemont Park. The event features a professional pre-race warm-up & stretch, a professional announcer, live DJ, one-of-a-kind FACETS event gear, a medal for every finisher, and an amazing time with friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, and community members who want to give back.
Register today! Fundraising is easier than you think. When you register you will receive a link to your personal fundraising page – customize it with a photo and your own message on why you are helping to outrun homelessness and your fundraising goal. Then, send your link to family and colleagues…post it on social media and ask folks to give what they can and share your link. You’ll have reached your goal in no time!
In 1988 FACETS was founded by Linda Wimpey on the belief that if we work together as a community we can make miracles happen for people experiencing homelessness, poverty and hunger in Fairfax County. Linda began by reaching out to her faith community to help serve hot meals to people who were homeless and hungry along Route 50. Today we continue the work Linda began and have grown to include permanent supportive housing, an emergency family shelter in Alexandria, community centers in impoverished neighborhoods and outreach to individuals experiencing homelessness.
Now we are reaching out to you to join us by helping outrun homelessness at the FACETS Cares 5K Run/Walk on Sunday June 23rd, 2019 at beautiful Bluemont Park in Arlington. You can register as an individual or form a team and fundraise together and then tie on your sneakers and show the world you are doing your part to end homelessness, poverty and hunger in Fairfax County.
The money we raise on June 23rd will go to work right here in your own neighborhood. Your fundraising efforts may change the world for a gentleman who has lived in the woods for 10 years. Or perhaps your run will change the future for a child at one of our community centers, funding a college visit that makes her dream a reality, ending the cycle of poverty for her family. Your commitment to our cause may touch the life of a single mom, who has fled domestic violence and now needs our help to be safely and permanently housed.
On behalf of the people whose lives you will change as you help us outrun homelessness at the 2nd Annual Facets Cares 5K Run/Walk… thank you!
