Let’s face it, 2020 is awful. We wouldn’t wish 2020 on anyone, yet here we are doing our best to endure and survive. While COVID has taken away far too much from us already, the Dodgers and the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation don’t plan on sitting idly by. In fact, on Tuesday the LADF announced that its annual Biofreeze Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation Run Presented by UCLA Health is going virtual.
The event will be open to 6,000 participants November 8-15, 2020, giving runners ample time to get into virtual running shape. Moreover, event-goers will receive an exclusive, limited-edition Walker Buehler bobblehead.
Moreover, LADF CEO Nichol Whiteman said the following on this unprecedented event.
Together, we’ll run the distance to improve education, healthcare, homelessness, and social justice for all Angelenos. While we would love to connect in our traditional style, LADF will not waver as we improve health and education outcomes for youth who simply need a chance. With the incredible support of our partners Biofreeze and UCLA Health, runners across the city will push themselves to healthy limits to help amplify our mission.
The Dodgers provided more information:
Runners will participate in the distance of their choice (5K or 10K) and join an online runner community and social media week. A special drive-thru packet pick-up will also be held at Dodger Stadium on November 7 where runners can pick up their Walker Buehler run bobblehead, Dodgers ’20 tech shirt, finisher’s medal, race bib, LA RUNS swag, and enjoy sponsor giveaways.
An exclusive bobblehead and helping charity? Sounds like a win-win!
