Me.She.We. Women's Half
Now Run On Your Own Only
Dear Me.She.We. Runners and Walkers,
An announcement like this is never ideal, but alas it is where we find ourselves during this uncertain time. In April it became clear that Social Distancing would be encouraged for far longer than expected and our June 5th event date was no longer a viable option. Therefore, like so many other events we rescheduled for the fall & offered the option of a virtual run.
As time has progressed, a variety of issues have evolved surrounding Fall events. First and above all is safety. Common sense dictates 200 people running the same route cannot stay a safe distance apart. Second is permits. Many issuing agencies have revoked permits for the remainder of 2020 while others have delayed the process until early October. And finally, we simply cannot guarantee you the awesome, uplifting and supportive event you deserve. For these reasons we will not be hosting any in-person running in 2020 and our October 17th date is now a Virtual Only Run.
In our best effort to take the lemons and make lemonade, all profits from our Me.She.We. 2020 will be given to two nonprofits to support their efforts in taking care of all of us. The first will be local, Wilsonville Community Sharing and the second will be Meals on Wheels, serving those both in and around our
We will continue our support of local nonprofits through our nonprofit program, including Reason to Run, Ainsley’s Angels, and Fun in the Park. Going virtual drastically reduces our event cost, meaning more money will go to these great organizations.
Why Continue with The Me.She.We. Women's Half ?
Looking forward to something matters. There are many ‘silent threats’ that affect our well-being at the moment. The obvious one is lack of human contact but there are others. I’ve noticed one of them in myself, and others, is that I have nothing to look forward to. I have nothing to work for, train for, plan for, etc. My calendar is completely blank. A week or so ago I realized how important it is to have something to look forward to, similar to ‘hope’ in something.
That’s what we want The Virtual Me.She.We. Women's Half to provide you. Something you can put on your calendar, know it is coming, train for it, ask others how their training is going, give advice, ask for advice and so on. It’s a challenge for you to tackle. A connection piece for you to embrace with others. A thing to simply look forward to. We will do a big hoopla on social media, you’ll share photos and videos, others will share photos and videos, it will be a nice big online celebration of running.
What are my options?
Run On Your Own. We will automatically put all participant registrations in this category and will mail you your shirt and medal. If you’re in to support the efforts of Wilsonville Community Sharing and Meals on Wheels, no need to let us know. We will mail out your shirt, bib, and medal in October.
Wait to Join Us in 2021. If you'd like to wait, you’re welcome to let us know and we can defer your entry to our Me.She.We. Women's Half 2021 race. Please let us know via email of this decision by July 1st, 2020.
And if you haven’t registered yet, but would like to:
All ‘distances’ will be the same price and we will mail you a shirt, bib, and finisher’s medal. We are leaving distance options open because we want you to choose something to work towards. Take this time, if you are able, to push yourself to something you didn’t think you were capable of completing.
Our Final Encouragement:
Community means helping each other when help is needed. We can assure you we feel the financial pain of this time, but we hope we are able to still be a positive in the community. If you are also able, we ask you to provide help however you know how as well.
While we are all doing that, if you’d like something to look forward to, join into the fun of running with us in The Me.She.We. Women's Virtual Half.
