MPI Sacramento/Sierra Nevada Chapter Chairman's Challenge 5K Fun Run/Walk
Thu, Mar 12, 2015
About This Activity
The Challenge To promote the importance of professional development, healthy lifestyles, strong chapters, and a robust meetings industry. MPI Foundation Chairman, Gus Vonderheide, is asking every MPI Chapter to host, or participate in a non-cause related 5K run or walk in March 2015. And, also asks every member [of each chapter] to participate in their local chapter 5K run/walk event and independently raise at least $250USD for the MPI Foundation Education Endowment.
MPISSN has accepted this challenge. On Thursday, March 12, our chapter and industry partners will take to the California State Capitol and walk/run three laps (3.3 miles) around the grounds finishing at Church Key (Patio of Hock Farm Craft & Provisions - 1415 L Street) to celebrate in a joint reception with CalSAE.
CalSAE will be holding their Morning Education & Luncheon Friday, March, 13. Event information and registration can be found at: http://www.calsae.org/events/eventdescription/?CalendarEventKey=516eb07a-ba22-4ef1-845c-307e10b2c068&EventTypeKey=&Home=/events/upcomingevents
You do not have to register for the walk/run to attend the joint reception. However, registration for the walk/run or CalSAE Happy Hour (through their website: www.calsae.org) is requested for a headcount.
We are doing this run/walk for fun. No time will be recorded and we hope to get a great group photo in front of the West steps of the State Capitol Building.
Funds raised by the challenge will go towards the MPI Foundation Education Endowment: 25% of all funds raised by chapter members will go back to each chapter to produce educational programming within their chapters locally; 75% of the funds raised will go towards the next fiscal year’s MPI Foundation chapter grant program. *A portion of the registration fee may be used for race day operations (water, reception, etc).
Shirt Sizes: For registrations after Wednesday, February 18th, we will do our best to accommodate requested shirt size. Shirts are being sponsored by Caesar's Entertainment and they are requesting orders by 2/19. Thank you for your understanding.
We hope you will join us.
