W Ten minutes past one, every night, bang on the dot without fail...an Adipose was born! Now, most of us would love to lose a kilo a day, and many of us would even be okay with it involving the creation of cute little lifeforms! The Adipose 5k celebrates the cutest creatures in all of time and space! This 4" 'medal' is only partially metal...it will have a metal back with 3-dimensional, soft PVC rubber so it will look and feel just like an Adipose! And...the custom sublimated ribbon has other brothers and sisters of the Adipose flying up the blue beams to the spaceships!
The Adipose were just kids needing mommies and daddies. Whovian Running Club is humbled and honored to announce that our charity partner for the Adipose 5k will be Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome (RODS)! RODS' mission is simple. They promote the adoption of orphans with Down syndrome by raising adoption grant funds, one child at a time, and by participating in organized, athletic races and awareness events. They literally run for orphans! The funds they raise get children from orphanages to forever homes. Whovian Running Club is hoping to raise $15,000 with this event...enough to get one beautiful and wonderful child from an orphanage in the developing world to their new family! Visit https://rods.org to learn more about what your participation will accomplish!
And don’t forget to get your event shirt! This one might be our all-time favorite...and how can you say no to that face? This super-geeky, super-cute Adipose shirt will make you the envy of any Whovian you meet! All proceeds from the shirts will go to RODS! LINK TBD
Whovian Running Club’s inaugural event was the Gallifrey 10.011002k (the space-time coordinates of the Doctor’s home). This event is the first FOUR medals known as the “Galgos Series” in support of SOS Galgos and Galgos Del Sol to rescue Spanish Greyhounds (called “galgos”) and educate the Spanish public about these beautiful dogs. The Galgos Series medals will be available at various times during 2016 and 2017.
