We're running to the polls with Run Rock Vote!
San Diego-based Run Rock Vote has partnered with HeadCount to get Americans excited about registering and voting by creating an added element of fun and fitness.
The concept is simple. Everyone can sign up and register with Run Rock Vote and receive a FREE commemorative bib, then throw on your headphones and running kicks anytime between Oct. 24 – Nov. 1, and rock out while you run five kilometers (5K or 3.1 miles) and show your spirit for participating in next month’s election. And don’t forget to show the world on social media how you Run Rock Vote by using the hashtag #runrockvote and mention @runrockvote in your posts.
“You can run anywhere you want,” said Run Rock Vote co-Founder Tony Finn. “You can run to the post office if you want to drop your ballot in the mail or you can just run your favorite path, but you’ve gotta rock out and make your voice heard. And if running’s not your thing, you can bike, skate, or even walk, but if you don’t register and vote, you can’t change a thing, so have some fun, get out and run and rock out, and most importantly, get out and vote.”
There are several options in which people can participate, including a free option. For no cost at all, you can simply sign up and register and you’ll receive a free downloadable Run Rock Vote race bib. For just $25, you can help support HeadCount and you’ll receive the race bib, along with a commemorative Run Rock Vote T-shirt and a sticker. And for $45, you can sign up and receive the race bib, T-shirt and sticker, along with a Run Rock Vote cap and a pair of buttons as a means of showing your full commitment to Run Rock Vote.
We want everyone to have a great time when they Run Rock and Vote, but it’s also important to remember that because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Run Rock Vote is a socially-distanced / virtual event. You can do it anywhere you like but just remember to do so in an area where you can practice social distancing.
See you out there as we race to the ballot box!!
