The annual Race for Warmth is a great way to get out and be active while helping those in our community who may be struggling. This year, Race for Warmth will be a virtual race taking place January 29-31, 2021; but even though the race is virtual, the funds raised for Operation Warm Heart will be able to offer some real help to those in need.
A virtual run is just like running a race with thousands of other people… just not all at the same place or time; in fact, you have all weekend to complete your distance. Come race weekend, you pick your own start time and finish line. You can run, walk, bike around your block, choose a route in your neighborhood, choose a route on the Clark Public Utilities website, or even complete the race on your treadmill.
Race for Warmth participants will receive a packet with a shirt, a bib number, a participation medal (new this year), race swag, and more. In lieu of prizes being awarded to racers with the fastest times, they will be doing raffle drawings leading up to and through the weekend of the race. Participants will receive an email with more details about raffle drawings, how to enter, and how to connect with fellow Race for Warmth participants from afar.
“COVID-19 has impacted all of us and Operation Warm Heart has become an even more valuable resource to our customers. This program helps local families in need pay their winter heating bills. In the past, the Race for Warmth has raised over $200,000 to help families heat their homes. So if you’re looking for a way to help, sign up for this event, share with friends and family and help us make a difference in our community.” ~Clark Public Utilities
