Love Wins 5K

Read Mission Statement

My name is B.J. Lehecka and I'm a professor of physical therapy at Wichita State University. I'm also a runner and my 31st birthday arrives this October, so I thought it was the perfect time to invite the world to run 3.1 miles with me and give a gift to others.

* What in the world is the Love Wins Remote 5K?

The beauty of a remote 5K is you can run the race WHEREVER you are! You can run (or walk or jog or bike or swim or climb or dance) the 3.1 miles around your own neighborhood or WHEREVER you want, with whomever you want, anytime during race day.

* How does it work?

It's simple. Register at www.lovewins5k.com. The cost is completely YOUR CHOICE and includes a "Love Wins" race shirt. $31 is only listed as a suggestion. Just give what you can! (You can also donate directly on this page!)

100% of the proceeds go to charity: water to help give clean, safe drinking water to the nearly one billion people on the planet without it.

On race day, take pictures of your run and/or yourself and friends in your race shirts, then post them to the Love Wins 5K Facebook page and they will be included in the Love Wins 5K photo album after the run.

* What about the "Love Wins" t-shirts?!

The "Love Wins" race shirt is another way we can run together while apart on race day. There are 54 color options for your "Love Wins" t-shirt! That's right. 54!

* Why water?

Nearly one billion of the world's poorest people lack access to clean water, and are forced to travel great distances to collect water from contaminated sources. Dirty water kills more people than all forms of violence including war, and every 20 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease.

* What else?

That's it! Register at www.lovewins5k.com and share this event with your friends! Love runs, walks, jogs, bikes, swims, climbs, dances, and ultimately WINS!

Thank you!
