Pineapple Squad Virtual 5k 2022
A virtual run to support the 1 in 8 who battle infertility
Virtual 5K Details!
Please join us for our third annual Pineapple Squad Virtual 5k as we run to spread infertility awareness and help break the financial barrier by providing much-needed relief to those who can't afford access to infertility treatments. This event is held in partnership with the Stork Foundation for Infertility. Proceeds will allow us to continue to provide support to those battling infertility and to fund financial grants offered by The Stork Foundation to cover fertility treatments.
Participants will have a two-week period (July 2nd-July 16th) to complete their 5K by walking, running, or even skipping the whole way if they want! The virtual event will take place wherever YOU are! All registrants will have the opportunity to win prizes and join in the event festivities. (VIP also gets the race day t-shirt).
Prizes will be awarded for: 1) Top runners, 2) Top fundraiser, and 3) Runner with the best 'pineapple spirit' photo shared on social media with tagging @storkfoundationforinfertility
Anyone who raises $150+ will receive an official Stork Foundation "Hope" Necklace created in partnership with Clay By Cait.
Participants who wish to track their time/distance can sign up for Map My Run App to be in the running for our top prizes. Submit your time here for the chance to win one of the top prizes. Be sure to follow @StorkFoundationforInfertility on Facebook and Instagram where we will be raffling off prizes, sharing infertility information, and connecting with participants.
While this is a virtual event, we strongly encourage you to create teams and host your own mini-events (just be sure to practice social distancing and follow local guidelines as required).
The Stork Foundation for Infertility is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing hope and opportunity to those suffering from infertility and fighting for their dream of parenthood. The Stork Foundation offers financial assistance to low-resource individuals who require costly medical infertility treatments that would otherwise be out of financial reach. The lack of infertility insurance coverage and high out-of-pocket cost for treatments (IVF, IUI, egg and sperm donation) can be prohibitively expensive, preventing many from the opportunity to conceive a child and experience the lifelong journey and joys of parenthood. The average cost for just one IVF cycle is $15,000-$20,000 including medicine. Your donation directly supports The Stork Foundation grant recipients. THANK YOU for your consideration - together we will make a difference!
