Join us in our first virtual Run in support of Charlotte's Immigrant communities affected by the Covid-19 crisis.
The Latin American Coalition restructured its services to open a Spanish hotline for the Latino community affected by the COVID-19 crisis. The LAC HELPLINE provides relief to immigrant families that will experience the most substantial impact of this crisis, as many cannot work from home and will not be eligible for government aid.
The line offer information on crisis assistance, help with groceries, questions about the school system, low-cost clinics, document translation, health clinics, immigration, and citizenship consultations, among others, and is available regardless of the family immigration status.
Two Ways to Participate
|- Run 1 Km per week for five weeks! |
- At the end of the challenge you will have completed the 5Km distance!
- Upload your results each week to the Virtual Results page to be entered into prize drawings.
|- Run a full 5K distance all at once. |

Unlike a traditional race, our Virtual Run/Walk takes place where you are and when you want, anytime from May 4th through June 7th, 2020. Run in place, around your back yard, or safely through your neighborhood and keep track using one of our suggested apps.
Closing ceremony will be Sunday June 7th! Join us on Facebook LIVE for a virtual awards ceremony, live music, and celebration!
All funds raised will go directly to our LAC Helpline to assist thousands of people affected by COVID-19 crisis.
