Yes, it is only 0.5K or 1,640 feet or 565 steps! But guess what? You don't even need to do that and you will still be supporting a good cause - the Galveston County Food Bank Children's Nutrition Outreach Program during the summer when school is out of session.
Net proceeds to go the Kidz Pacz program. Why?
In an attempt to close the gap of summer time hunger, the Galveston County Food Bank has established the Kidz Pacz program. During the summer months, many children who depend on free or reduced meals at school often struggle to have enough food at home. Through our Kidz Pacz program we offer ready to eat, kid-friendly meal packs to eligible children for 10 weeks during the summer months.
Get on your walking shoes..or not
Z Krewe's 0.5K was created for folks who are NOT ready to go the extra mile. In fact, they aren't even willing to go a mile at all, and barely even a quarter mile ... But our 0.5k'ers are willing to be silly and have a little bit of fun while raising money to help the Galveston County Food Bank's Kidz Pacz Program feed hungry Kidz.
Z Krewe's 0.5K "Race" will incorporate all the typical race elements into a treacherous 1,640 ft "race course". No training or effort is required. This is a ummmm.. "Race" for all the Slackers, Un-Runners, Underachievers and Couch Potatoes! It's OK to take your time and not "race" to the finish line. Everyone will get a medal to show off Monday at the office!
Goodies and Fun Stuff!
Let's talk about the GOOD STUFF!!! Your entry fee will get you a bag of swag filled with one of those cool pretentious "Race" Stickers that will say 0.5K, a fabulous T-shirt to prove you were there, and "Finisher Medal" to show off Monday at the office so that everyone can be jealous of your accomplishments! But wait... There's MORE! All Regular & VIP Entry's will also be given a FREE BEER at the Finish Line!
(Everyone under 21 will receive a FREE ROOT BEER!)
Don't feel like running? Don't think you can make it the full 656 Steps? Then you should be a VIP. For an additional $30, you don't even have to run! How awesome is that?! In addition to all that regular Swag listed above, you can hitch a Ride to the Finish Line and sip on Mint Juleps along the way.
Let's be honest - If you have the money to buy your way into to doing nothing, then you should be able to. So go ahead and grab that VIP Entry!
In addition to all that Regular Swag (listed above), You will receive:
The Kids 0.5K is for Participants under the age of 21. These ALL STAR Kiddos will receive a Special Medal and a Finish Line ROOT BEER once they reach the Finish Line! (Sorry Kids ... No Alcohol for you!) Shirts are not included with purchase but can be purchased during the online registration.
Can’t make the “Race” – Don’t worry about it! You can participate from the comfort of your couch! Virtual Participants will get a t-shirt, the pretentious oval sticker, and a Finisher Medal just like everyone else so you can brag that you are a finisher of the 0.5K and no one will know any different. Brilliant! (All virtual participant names are stored in an encrypted database certified secure by the NSA and will be held in strict confidence and will never be released to the public. Your secret is safe with us.)
Best way to start your day!
