, 9:30 am
Location: VIRTUAL 5k + 1 mile fun run

ATTENTION: DUE TO NC GOVERNOR RECOMMENDATIONS AND COVID-19, THIS EVENT IS NOW VIRTUAL.

Now is the time for us to come together...  by staying apart.

Now is the time for us to help local non-profits which have seen their donations decrease when the needs in our community are greater than ever.

Now is the time for us to Stay Strong!

During this time of isolation, join together with runners and walkers all over the country in supporting their local charities and organizations.

THIS EVENT BENEFITS: 75+ LOCAL Nonprofit organizations in our community!

The Human Race 2020 is the 26th annual fundraiser for the Volunteer Center of the Triad. This is a virtual 5k timed run and 1-mile fun run/walk that allows participants to raise money for their favorite nonprofit! 

This event allows participants to raise money for their favorite nonprofit (agency, school PTA, church, etc..). The Volunteer Center takes care of all of the planning, and has managed the race since 1994, raising over $5 million for our community! Our goal this year is to raise $157,500 for COVID-19 relief support for all participating nonprofits and the populations they serve.

The Human Race is a unique way for our community to come together:

  • About 100 different nonprofits form teams and recruit members to fundraise for their missions
  • Dozens of companies form teams and their employees can choose the cause they are most passionate about
  • Every registrant gets a fundraising page. Once you register, you will have your special link and you can share with those who want to support and donate. 

Location: Anywhere you choose!

Time: You can run, walk, roll anytime between June 13th and 19th and log your time on the ITS YOUR RACE app! But MOST IMPORTANTLY - you will want to tune in to see results, awards, and an awesome LIVE program: “RACE TO THE FUNDRAISING FINISH LINE”

JUNE 20th, 2020

Pre-Show: 9:30 AM, 10 AM Program starts!

You will be able to watch LIVE on our website and on Facebook! You can comment during the event and donate to causes you care about!
