What is the VISEDAL Virtual 5k?
The VISEDAL Virtual 5k is an opportunity for anyone--runners and non-runners--to support VISEDAL! Because this is a virtual race, anyone can participate anywhere in the world, at anytime on October 4!
All participants will get an awesome VISEDAL t-shirt, which they are encouraged to wear during the race. Prizes will be awarded for the fastest running times, as well as for the most creative activities.
Not a Runner? No Problem!
The VISEDAL Virtual 5k is NOT just a running/walking race! Want to drive the 5k? Awesome! Do five sets on the bench press? Sounds good to us! Play five songs on your guitar? Rock on! Read five chapters in a book? Turn those pages!
You can do whatever activity you'd like to do! Be creative! You could win a prize!

Proceeds Help Our 31 Scholars in Nicaragua
The goal of the VISEDAL Virtual 5k is to raise support for the 31 children and young adults in Managua, Nicaragua, who receive food, clothing, scholarships, mentoring, and guidance through VISEDAL's Scholar Sponsorship Program. Your registration fee will help us provide everything that our scholars need to be successful in school and life.
Choose Where, When, and How You Participate
Runners and walkers can participate wherever and whenever they want. Feel free to run/walk outside or on a treadmill. However, the race is NOT just for runners or walkers! You get to choose your own activity. Just do five of something--whatever you want to do! Yes, really--anything! Be creative! There will be prizes for the most creative and fun activities.
