Run For It 5k

What Will You Run For?

The Run For It 5k started in 2013 as a chance to reach our local community and share the message of hope and help in a new way. We witnessed hundreds of people running for health, recovery, or in memory of a loved one. Since then, the Run For It 5k has evolved from several hundred people in Satellite Beach, Florida, to thousands running in all 50 states, and over 10 different countries across the globe.

This year’s Run For It 5k will take place on Saturday, April 14, 2018.

Join our team in Satellite Beach, Florida, or participate in your own community as a part of the Virtual 5k. When you purchase a virtual runner’s pack, you have the chance to rally the people around you and bring the message of hope and help directly to your community. Together, we will move for something that matters.


Hosting a meet-up is a unique way to build momentum in your community and share the message of hope and help. It’s an opportunity to connect with other TWLOHA supporters interested in running or walking the 3.1-miles together.

We encourage you to use your fundraising page to share the time and place, and route where you’ll start the 5k. To help you plan, we’ve created a meet-up guide that you can Download here.
