Samsung Austin Semiconductor has teamed up with MAVS to bring you a virtual 5k!
As you know, we unfortunately had to postpone the annual MAVS Charity Classic and Gala due to Covid-19. We have since been looking at alternatives to help us continue to place veterans and spouses in gyms. Samsung Austin Semiconductor has provided us that alternative and graciously sponsored a new opportunity in the form of a virtual 5k. We’ve got a fun and engaging plan that will allow us to continue fundraising and come together safely, in order to keep our mission alive and thriving.
Samsung has a large veteran community and supporting their veteran employees is a priority. MAVS will provide resources and guidance on how to be the best virtual fundraisers and will be handing out some sweet prizes for those who get creative and raise the most!
Register as early as 8/18 and begin fundraising at any time. Check your email for regular social media fundraising tips and tricks beginning 10/1.
Check out the Participant Registration page for more details on what the race packet includes and the perks of being an ‘Early Bird’ Fundraiser.
For a chance to win a MAVS swag bag with MAVS merch and goodies from our partners at Cellucor make sure when you complete your 5k post a picture or video (preferably in your favorite MAVS gear) and use the hashtags #MAVSvirtual5k & #samsunggives.
