2021 Virtual Walk-A-Thon Event Details 

 

Spring is here which means nice weather, sunshine, and our 21st Annual Step Up for The Arc  Walk-a-thon! We are launching a new campaign to come together, foster awareness, and raise  critical funding to support The Arc Middlesex’s programs and resources for people with  intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and their families. We would love for you to join us  in our mission! 

First register for our 2021 Virtual Walk-a-Thon by clicking this link below: https://app.mobilecause.com/form/1g2PLg?vid=igeh1 

This year you can also create your own fundraising page, build your own fundraising team, or  join a pre-existing team to further support The Arc Middlesex’s mission and goal. Starting a  fundraiser is easy to do, and it’s fun. By becoming a fundraiser for The Arc Middlesex, you will  help more people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and their families.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this year will be different. Instead of gathering  together, we are inviting you to Step Up for The Arc Middlesex in a safe & social distanced  manner: walking, running, or rolling in your own neighborhood, on a local trail, or even on a  treadmill. We are extremely excited about this event and hope you will be a part of it! 

Our event kicks off Memorial Day Weekend on Sunday, May 30th, 2021. We invite you to walk and raise money for your fundraising page/team page until Wednesday, June 30th, 2021.

Take  photos of your walk to share with us and other participants on social media. Prizes for our photo  contest will be given out after the conclusion of our virtual walk-a-thon.  

Our photo contest categories include: 

• Most Scenic Walking Route 

• Cutest furry friend 

• Wackiest Walk-a-Thon outfit 

• Most Miles Walked (use the app Map My Run and submit screenshots of your miles  logged) 

• Most Team Spirit 

• Most Creative Cheer Sign 

Be sure to tag us @thearcmiddlesex and use the hashtag #StepUpforTheArcMiddlesex. You can  also email us photos to sbuntin@arc-middlesex.org.
