Fuel The Bern 5K (Portland)

February 26 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

This 5k is a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood, in response to Donald Trump’s executive actions to de-fund this program.
Strollers are welcome but will start at the back of the running crowd at the starting line for safety reasons.

The race will be professionally and accurately timed, with backup systems to ensure accurate timing.

Registration is by donation on Eventbrite. The race is capped at 250 people so please register and donate what you can afford at:

https://www.eventbrite.com/

Packet pickup will be Saturday, February 25th. 1st place overall in male and female categories will receive a trophy made by a local artist.

Registered participants are encouraged to participate in the personal fundraising challenge by setting up a personal GoFundMe account online and receive donations to be given to Planned Parenthood after the race. On race day, when participants come to pick up their bibs we will record how much money they raised by viewing their account total on their mobile phone. We will announce the top 3 fundraisers of the event, who will receive special awards made by local artists.
