Virtual 5k

Michigan DECA will be holding a virtual 5K in recognition of DECA Month.  The virtual event will allow DECA members to participate on any day in November 2020 and a location that works best for them, while keeping social distancing in mind.

During the past six months, our members have had to socially distance themselves from activities due to the COVID Pandemic.  The Michigan DECA 5K is a fantastic way for members to virtually connect with each other by participating as an individual or small socially distanced groups to promote DECA and raise support for our student-lead activities.

Individuals wishing to participate can register for the event and gear up for their own personal journey. The virtual 5k allows each participant to safely walk or run solo at their own leisure, without needing to worry about massive crowds or a time limit.  There is no official route, nor permits required. They can actively promote their own 5k event and encourage family members’ and friends’ involvement through social media and rally others to participate.  Once completed, the member will submit their time and, if possible, a photo for recognition.

Each registered participant will receive Michigan DECA 5K swag to communicate their involvement in this fun, healthy activity!  You will receive a Michigan DECA themed 5K finisher’s medal, t-shirt, and water bottle.

Michigan DECA members are invited to connect with business partners and local community members to obtain sponsors for their run.  All proceeds from the sponsorships will be earmarked to their chapter.  The 5K fee is $40.00 per participant, of which $10.00 is returned to the local chapter.  Additional sponsorships will provide $35.00 of support back to their chapter for every $40.00 sponsorship secured.
