Mummy? Mummy? Are you my mummy?

Whovian Running Club is thrilled to announce the second event of the 2020 season:

Empty Child 5k!

This year we celebrate those unforgettable moments when this eclectic science fiction series turned us from casual viewers into devoted fans. For so many Whovians, the equally alarming and emotional adventure of the Ninth Doctor and Rose during the London Blitz was such a moment. From Captain Jack and the nanogenes, to bombing raids and bananas, the two-part story is one of the most popular and memorable ever aired.

Your registration includes this beautiful 3″ medal featuring the gasmask that terrified a whole new generation of Whovians! On the back is the Doctor’s famed and heartwarming quote. As with every WRC medal, all registrants also receive the beautiful custom sublimated ribbon, and the always-popular personalized digital bib!

“Oh, come on. Give me a day like this. Give me this one.”

As Nine told Rose, there isn’t a four-year old who wouldn’t tear the world apart to save his mummy; and there isn’t a child alive we wouldn’t do anything for in order to keep them from ever having to feeling empty from hunger. That’s why our charity partner for this event is Every Meal!

Every Meal is dedicated to fight child hunger through community and school partnerships. They organize “backpack programs” that send high quality healthy foods home for students who need it most, but they are more than that: they are an ever-growing network of weekend food programs operating in over 245 schools and growing.

Our support of Every Meal will help ensure that kids have three filling, nutritious meals a day, every day, through the school year…and over the entire calendar year!
