Atheists United is organizing a virtual 5k for runners, walkers, and rollers anywhere and everywhere in support of the Black Skeptics Los Angeles (BSLA) COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund!
In times of crisis, secular communities of color, as well as queer and LGBTQIA+ communities, are often forced to rely on religious and faith-based institutions for aid and assistance. All funds raised will be used to provide immediate assistance to secular people of color and their families — across religious affiliation — during the pandemic.
Bring together your friends, family, community, and coworkers and get moving for this emergency cause!
Our 5k is planned for Thursday, May 7th — also known as the National Day of Prayer by Christian Nationalists.
5k’s will be organized individually by participants in their local neighborhoods or in their homes.
We ask all participants to practice safe physical distancing and wear a mask if able. Please DO NOT break quarantine/shelter-in-place guidelines to participate and wash your hands before and after your 5k.
