First Annual Jubilee 5K Run/Walk Event
Our very own event! For the past few years, many of us have participated in the Scotiabank Waterfront 5K Walk / Run, ½ Marathon, and Full Marathon. Scotiabank has officially cancelled this year’s 5K Walk / Run. Therefore, we shall be hosting our own event: Jubilee United Church 5K Walk / Run for Our Community, right here through the streets of Don Mills, on the afternoon of Saturday, October 3 (rain date Sunday, October 4).
Register as a Participant
Ready to register yourself or a team as a walker or runner? You will go individually or with other members of your household, at a selected departure time. You’ll find a map of the 5K route attached below as a downloadable PDF. Ask friends, family members, co-workers, etc. to sponsor your efforts. All donations of $5 and over will receive a tax receipt. We ask that each participant set a personal goal of raising at least $200. Our goal is to reach $20,000. There will be a limit of 40 participants, so sign up quickly!
Other Ways to Participate
We are looking for the creative folks in our congregation to design the T-Shirt for the event. We want to limit the number of colours used in the design to just two (2) to keep printing cost reasonable. We ask that one element of the design include the Jubilee green horn. The design will appear on the back of the T-Shirt so it will not be hidden by the race bib. A nominal prize will be awarded to the designer of the chosen design. Closing date for entries is September 4, 2020. Designs should be emailed to Gary Norris at email@example.com.
RACE DAY VOLUNTEERS:
Would you like to be involved on race day, but you’d rather not do the 5K? We need race marshals at every intersection along the route, volunteers to help with the start / finish line set up and registration desk, photographers, timekeepers, and other helpers to do what’s needed. You can sign up right now!
We want this event to be self-funding so that all money raised by the participants goes directly to the support of Jubilee and its community initiatives. Tax receipts of $5 or more will be issued to those sponsoring (we will need a full name and address to issue the tax receipt). If you would like to sponsor in general or a specific item, please contact Gary Norris. Approximate total costs for each item are shown.
- $300 – Lawn route signs. These will not be date sensitive and can be used for the following year’s event. This is a one-time cost to the event.
- $100 – Goody bags for participants containing a drink, an orange, an energy bar and a participation certificate.
- $50 – Miscellaneous expected items.
- $25 – Race bibs (cardstock, safety pins) Approximately $25.00.
- Any amount – General sponsorship for the overall event.
PARTICIPANT SPONSORSHIPS: You can also support a group or an individual. There is a link to the participant list below. You can either contact the individual and have them add you to their sponsorship form, or if you wish to remain anonymous, send a cheque to the church with the name of the person you wish to sponsor. For anonymous donors, we will add your sponsorship to the individual’s total dollars only. Please do not send cash by mail: send cheques only made out to Jubilee United Church and please indicate that it is a sponsorship donation for the event.
