HOWDY TO THE HEIFERHOOD!
Y'all know I love a good race! A virtual race even moreso - because I can run it on my own time, date, place, and still collect my favorite thing of all time - BLINNNNNNG!
RUN TO THE POLLS is an incredible virtual race that I'm asking you for your support on. Sign up! Run the race your day, your way! Your time, etc. WHY?
This race celebrates the privilege we have of voting! A little blurb from FureverHome:
Voting is critically important to any country and we want to get more people involved in the United States. Through this nonpartisan effort, we want to:
– Raise awareness about voting importance and voter rights in the United States
– Encourage voter registration and early voting
– Highlight key issues individuals should explore to be an informed voter
Registration is currently open through mid September. Race packets will be sent the week of October 8. The race will take place the three weeks leading up to election day – October 16 - November 6. Race packets will include a custom race bib, the awesome finisher’s medal you see below, and some cool stuff from our sponsors! You will be able to customize your bib and add additional merchandise to your packet, to include a custom: Race t-shirt, Hoo Rag, Hoodie, etc.
Before you ask - what distance?? Any distance you like - mainly 5k, 10k, or if you're feelin' really fly, do a half! Do whatever distance works for YOU! What matters is you're up, you're active, you're helping a few good non profits, and you're making a difference in the lives of others!
Check out the bling you'll receive:
The race costs $24.95 plus shipping and tax.
$5.00 from your registration will go to help support two nonprofit animal rescue organizations and $2.00 will go to help support the League of Women Voters.
Registration is currently open and will run through mid-September. Packets will be sent to everyone on October 8th – just in time for your race! There is also a Facebook community page set up to share your stories and pictures from your race.
We thank you for participating and look forward to seeing you "Run to the Polls!"
Let's show some HEIFERHOOD support and see if we can get this race sold out! Proceeds from your fee go to two nonprofit organizations - and you get the honor or running to the polls!

THIS heifer loves Furever Home because of their core beliefs:
(1) they believe every animal deserves a safe, loving home, is provided healthcare, and has adequate food, and (2) they believe every person can participate in running sports regardless of perceived ability. They believe everyone's health is vitally important in increasing physical fitness and can be accomplished by increasing self-efficacy and access to running sports.
