It is not too late to sign up for St. Luke’s (virtual) Fit One 2020 fundraiser. You can run or walk a 5K, 10K or half marathon anywhere, but the fundraiser portion only counts if you register by Friday. Due to current air quality conditions, the race timeframe has been extended to Sept. 30. Money raised from FitOne entry fees supports St. Luke’s Children’s along with community health initiatives aimed at children and families, according to a press release from St. Luke’s.

Instead of waking up early to join a large group in downtown Boise to run a pre-determined course, participants track their own course and time in the digital realm by using the RaceJoy app while running or walking on their own terms and in their favorite location.

St. Luke’s FitOne will supply the race shirts, bibs, medals and virtual cheers and high-fives. This year, a big chunk of entry fees will build a walking/running track at Garfield Elementary School and one in the Notus community.

Registration is $30 and is available at FitOneBoise.org. On social media please use the hashtag #FitOneBoise and @FitOneBoise on Twitter and Instagram.
