VIRTUAL 5K RUN/WALK OR 1-MILE FAMILY FUN RUN/WALK TO SUPPORT THE GUILD FOR EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN! REGISTER NOW FOR A GREAT CAUSE AND GET A BEAUTIFUL CUSTOM "BELIEVE THERE IS GOOD" IN THE WORLD T-SHIRT with the GEC logo! Run or Walk your virtual race any time between May 27th and June 12th. The Guild for Exceptional Children has been providing care, education, and support to children and adults with developmental disabilities since 1958. Like so many others, COVID19 has hit our people and services hard. We are raising money to build our services back, and reach people with developmental disabilities who need our help.

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RUN/WALK? A Virtual Run/Walk is a 5K or 1 mile walk or run that can be completed in your own country, your own neighborhood, at a local park, or even on the treadmill. You can run, walk, ride or roll!
Sign up, gather some friends, decide on a route, and get out and move! The best part is, you'll know that each step you take is helping the Guild for Exceptional Children!
