FAQ

WHAT is a Virtual 5K?  When you sign up for our virtual 5K you can run or walk whenever you want wherever you want on Sunday, May 1, 2022.  We hope you will wear your 5K shirt and recruit friends to do it with you (socially distanced of course).

WHEN should I run or walk?  ANYTIME at any PACE on Sunday, May 1, 2022.  Let us know you finished and send your photos and videos to info@foster5k.org.  

WHERE can I run or walk?  ANYWHERE!  This is your 5K so choose wherever you want, whenever you want on May 1, 2022.  You're welcome to use our original course at Sunnyvale Baylands (note there is a $6 parking fee) or use a smartphone distance tracking app such as MapMyRun, RunKeeper, Strava, or the iPhone Activity app. 

Is there a CASA discount? Yes!  We value our CASAs and have discounts for CASAs and their youth.  Ask your CASA Specialist for the discount code that we created just for you and your kiddo.

HOW do I get my SHIRT?  We prefer that you pick up your shirt and bib (packet pickup).  If you live in the U.S. and order early enough we will mail your shirt and bib to you.  Can't find it?  Contact us at info@foster5k.org.

What are the Contests?  There are prizes for the largest team, highest fundraiser, and best photo.  Submit those photos to info@foster5k.org by 3pm pacific time on Sunday! 

How do I join or create a TEAM? You can choose or create a team when you sign up.  If you've already signed up, then you can click on the menu for Group/Teams and create or find a group there.  We strongly encourage teams - there will be a contest for the team with the most check-ins on 5K day!

May I raise money for Child Advocates?  Yes! you can raise funds on your own or as a team when you sign up or go to Donate-Become a Fundraiser and create your fundraiser (scroll down if you want to create a team to raise funds with others).  Please connect to FB from within Run Signup - it really works to generate donations.
