Welcome! We hope you'll walk 5K with Prevention on May 2: The walking is real—it's the community that's virtual.
You’re probably familiar with local runs and walks held at a specific location. You’ve got to live close enough to get there by the start time—and parking can be a beast. With a virtual walk, you pick where you do it, who you do it with, and what time you start.
Here's everything you need to know to join in!
Do I get a T-shirt?
Of course! It wouldn’t be an official walk without one. Just signing up is free, but you can add on a tee for $35, which includes shipping, a custom bib number, and a printed "I Did It" sign.
What if I can’t do it on May 2?
That’s okay! Sign up, do your 5K anytime in May, and wear your T-shirt proudly. We’ll be sharing photos on our social media that day, and hope you will too—but we’ll be excited to hear about your walk whenever you do it.
How do you know I really did a 5K?
Frankly, we don’t. But we trust you—that’s what community is all about. We'll be following along with everyone who posts on social media, so be sure to share your experience and use #virtualwalk and #WhyIWalk.
How can I prepare for the Virtual Walk?
We'll be sending an exclusive newsletter to everyone who signs up for the event. And we're so excited to reveal that fitness guru Amy Schemper has created a great 6-week walking plan to get you ready, so we know you’ll able to do it. The plan is available exclusively through our Virtual Walk newsletter, so make sure you sign up!
Why should I walk?
It’s incredibly good for you: Walking can reduce belly fat, protect your brain, and add years to your life. But you might also walk for other reasons, like to catch up with a friend or to explore your neighborhood. And if you share your “Why I Walk” story with us, you can enter for a chance to win one of 10 Fitbit Versa 2 SE smart watches! There's lots more advice on our Virtual Walk page, too.
