It is no surprise that with the current situation, we need to adapt the annual Run/Walk for Aidan for 2020. The good news is that the run has simply gone digital! What does this mean? The digital 2020 Run/Walk for Aidan will accomplish what the Leffler family appreciates the most: our community coming together to run and walk.
How to Participate in the Digital Run/Walk for Aidan
For 2020, please join the team for Aidan by going for a….
- WALK –
- RUN –
- HAVE YOUR KIDS DASH –
- OR BAKE SOMETHING to show support for Aidan and family.
Be sure to take a picture or write a message about what you did. Then, post to the Facebook page at Walk for Aidan Facebook Group or if not able to post, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and our team volunteers will post it for you.
Every year, there are folks out of town that can’t make the event. This year, one silver lining is that we can all participate!, even if out of town! Even if you walk or run a day before or after, you can still share and be a part of the community to support the Lefflers.
As for raising funds to help with Aidan’s medical expenses, this year will be a year to skip that step. Focus instead on your walk, run, dash or baking – all to virtually show that the Lefflers are not alone. Focus on taking steps to increase your health and vitality in a way that is fitting for you. Take your steps with a positive attitude and a prayer for Aidan and for our community.
New to 2019 was the Aidan trivia round during awards, so we will continue the trivia in 2020 and see who comes up with the best trivia question for a prize. Submit your trivia with your run/walk/dash/baking photo. Also, there will be prizes for the top 3 pictures for men, women, and kids!
Prizes this year will be mailed (you may win a certificate from Super Jock and Jill… Oiselle….Shoes and Feet… Cummins Chiropractic and Wellness or maybe the best prize of all – something from the Lefflers garage!)
Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 29th. Get your minds and bodies prepared for a super fun virtual day!
Thanks and see you next year!
