Join us in raising funds for the Rose family adoption by purchasing tickets to participate in our Virtual 5K run, walk, or bike & get an awesome 3[5K] - Run for the Roses Tshirt!
Purchase tickets for each participant and receive a 3[5K] - Run for the Roses Tshirt.
All proceeds will go towards the Rose Family Adoption.
Every Memorial Day Runner, Walker, or Biker will help raise funds for the Rose family to adopt 2 school-aged siblings from the country of Burundi. This is a great way to enjoy a few friends over the holiday, enjoy exercise, and make an impact!
This race is virtual! You can participate from wherever you are located. Anytime over the Memorial Day weekend you can run, walk, or bike to participate in this race to raise funds and awareness for both the 35Kcampaign and the Rose Family Adoption.
Invite a few friends to join you and complete your race course around your neighborhood, local park, downtown, or in the country. Make it your own fun adventure!
Post your pictures and your run time on the Facebook event if you wish to share. While running, we encourage you to wear a 3(5K)campaign - Run for the Roses shirt. The only requirement is to be safe and have fun while completing your race.
The Roses are a big, adventurous family from Illinois. They currently have 6 children (2 of whom are adopted). They have been very involved in business and outreach in Africa. Having been to Rwanda many times, they are adopting from Rwanda's neighboring country, Burundi. Andrew and Alisha Rose are an active-lifestyle couple and are always hosting and participating fundraisers for other families and causes. Alisha's last major adventure was hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro (be glad that is not what we asked you to do this Memorial Day weekend). This time it is our turn to help them raise the money their family needs to bring home their two newest additions to their forever home!

Things to do on the Facebook Event:
As you purchase a ticket, you will have the option to choose a shirt size. The earlier you purchase your tickets, the better chance you'll have of your shirt arriving before Memorial Day Weekend. If you purchase your tickets too late, no worries, you will have a clean (no-sweat) shirt to celebrate your victory!
