Spread the Sunshine Virtual Run/Walk

Walking On Sunshine



Walking on Sunshine Virtual Run/Walk


August 15-August 22, we encourage you to go the extra mile for Camp Sunshine! Since we can’t go to Camp this summer because of COVID-19, we can still “gather” virtually as a community to raise money for Camp. This virtual walkathon/runathon is a great way to spend time outdoors while continuing our support for Camp Sunshine. 

Help us reach our goal of $5,000 dollars to support Camp Sunshine’s mission. A family here in Harvard has generously agreed to match $1,000 dollars in donations, so we are off to a great start!

About the Walking on Sunshine Virtual Run/Walk

A virtual walk/run event will allow Camp Sunshine supporters to complete the challenge on their own. You will run or walk your registered race distance at your own pace and at a time and location of your choosing. You can complete your distance anywhere you prefer, whether it's in a park, throughout your neighborhood, or even on a treadmill. The location is 100% your choice.

Fundraising Options & Incentives

Everyone who registers to participate and completes their designated challenge will receive a ribbon or finisher's medal by mail. We encourage everyone to run/walk with a purpose and fund raise through this site. You can also fund raise by creating your own Facebook fundraiser.

If you choose to create a Facebook fundraiser, you MUST record of all donations you receive from that platform as "offline donations" in your participant center on Team Raiser. We are unable to confirm Facebook donations in real-time. If you want to get credit for those donations and receive fundraising incentives, you must keep track of your Facebook donations on your own through Team Raiser.

Everyone who raises an additional $150 will receive a cotton t-shirt (unisex sizes), $250 fundraisers will receive a tech shirt (available in men's and women's sizes). *Participants who raise more than $400 are entitled to their choice of either a cotton t-shirt or a tech shirt. Incentives will be ordered and mailed after the event.

Thank you for helping us all make a difference together!

We, Charlotte Foley and Emily Douglas, are rising seniors at Bromfield, and this fundraiser is a part of our senior project. We went to Camp Sunshine last year, so we organized Walking on Sunshine to keep the community involved this summer. We hope you will join us!
