We’re excited to announce our MMAA Pride Month Virtual 5K!

During the COVID-19 pandemic, people around the world have been utilizing their own spaces to get healthy.  So in that spirit, we’re inviting you to join us virtually throughout the month of June — anytime and anywhere while practicing social distancing — on your own street, backyard, living room, around your building, on your bike, in a wheelchair or even on a treadmill for a 5K!

The event is designed to promote physical wellness while raising crucial funds in our mission to advance fairness and equality for the LGBTQ military and veteran community.

Race Day Festivities:

We want to be as connected as possible with everyone participating throughout the month, so we ask you to post a photo, video, or live stream of you in your course on social media. If possible, wear your favorite MMAA swag or branch specific t-shirt. 

Post using the hashtag #MMAAVirtual5k and tag us at:

Facebook: @ModernMilitary
Twitter: @LGBTQ_Military
Instagram: @LGBTQ_Military

Tracking your distance virtually: Submit your time and track through a photo or apps like Strava, Map my Run, Fitbit, and other fitness tracking apps to info@modernmilitary.org

Registration:

Registration is only $5. Then we ask you, the participant, to get your family, friends, and neighbors to sponsor you for your 5K. Have them add your name to the “Sponsor a Runner / Donate” form under “Message of Support.”

The first 50 individuals to register will receive an MMAA lapel pin.
