T-Shirt Deadline

ShareYourSpare-GreenToday’s post is a friendly reminder that there are only five days until our t-shirt deadline for Share Your Spare 5K Run/Walk.  To guarantee that you receive the size you need, please make sure to register before Friday, May 16thWe will order extra shirts, and you can still register after Friday, but we cannot guarantee size preference after May 16th. This deadline includes virtual participants and Lexington participants.  T-shirts are included with your registration fee, whether you run/walk as an individual, as a couple, or virtually.  

Kids One Mile Fun Walk:  There is no shirt option for the Kids One Mile Fun Walk.  Kids are encouraged to wear as much green as creatively as possible to support kidney health.  Prizes will be awarded.  Rydan is very excited to lead the Kids Walk! At the end of the walk, all kids will have the opportunity to “Guess How Many Kidneys” (green jelly beans) are in the jar. Closest guess wins the jar!  All kids will receive a goody bag for participating in the walk.

Lexington 5K Participants:  Your t-shirt will be available for pick up on June 6th in Lexington.  Location and time will be announced in the near future, and you will be contacted via email with more details.  In addition to running/walking with us on June 7th, you will also have the opportunity to register as an organ donor.  If you would like to do so, please be sure to have your driver’s license with you. Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates (KODA) will have a table set up to help you register and answer any questions you might have.  You will also be able to receive a FREE kidney health screening from the Kidney Health Alliance of Kentucky (KHAKY).  Kidney disease can often go undiagnosed because the signs and symptoms are so subtle.  This is a great opportunity to get screened for FREE!

Hegins 5K Virtual Participants:  Your t-shirt will be available for pick up on June 6th in Hegins.  Location and time will be announced in the near future, and you will be contacted via email with more details.  

Virtual Participants outside of Hegins or out-of-state:  Your t-shirt will be mailed to you at the end of May so that you receive it prior to race day on June 7th.

***ALL VIRTUAL PARTICIPANTS:  Don’t forget to snap a few photos of yourselves on race day and email them to me at bwmarie@hotmail.com, or send them to me via text or FB message.  Our Match For Ryan FB page does not allow others to post photos to it, but I will create an album with all of the virtual photos that I receive.

Unable to participate?  Please consider making a donation, which will help fund Ryan’s transplant costs and medications, as well as support The National Kidney Foundation of KY. Please use the link below to sign up and/or donate, and feel free to share this post on your own social media sites.  Let’s help spread awareness for kidney disease, encourage others to become organ donors, and run/walk to show our support for Ryan!
