2020 was a crazy year and we are all interested to see what 2021 brings. We hope it’s full of good vibes, healing and plenty of toilet paper! Did you know that National Toilet Paper Day takes place on August 26, 2021? We thought one way to honor this day is to celebrate that we survived the Toilet Paper Apocalypse of 2020! Toilet paper became such a hot commodity through the pandemic and this medal will be a way to remember this crazy time in our history. So lace up those shoes, keep six feet away from everyone else and race for the toilet paper! Since it’s a virtual race you will be able to avoid the crowds but still participate in event with other people around the world!
Plus, we will be donating at least 20% of each registration to Water Mission, which is an amazing organization that builds safe water, sanitation and hygiene, solutions in developing countries and disaster areas. From their website they report the following:
In the last three months, teams across our nine country programs have been providing safe water solutions amid COVID-19 to slow the spread of the virus in vulnerable communities, such as refugee settlements.
Your support has been integral to our ongoing response to the health crisis and has allowed us to install more than 400 hand-washing stations globally.*For a limited time you can purchase an official shirt and/or hoodie HERE! (these are sold on another site, through Threadless.com so none of our promo codes apply to these). What: This is a virtual race. You choose to complete 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1 or 26.2.
