Hogwarts Running Club, in partnership with Mugglenet.com and Feltbeats, is pleased to present our fifth event of 2016:
We have partnered with our friends at Mugglenet and Feltbeats to bring you the Fantastic Beasts 5k!
The medal is Newt Scamander's magical suitcase and is actually TWO medals with a hinge so the medal can open and close! When open, the medal is 3" x 5"! And the beautiful sublimated ribbon is a mash-up of the US Stars & Stripes and the British Union Jack to celebrate Newt's adventures finding fantastic beasts in America!
The suggested run date for this event is Sunday, July 31st...Harry's birthday! Remember, this is only a suggestion. You are welcome to complete your 5k whenever you want!
While some beasts are fantastic, others are not. Currently, more than 1 billion people around the globe, half of which are children, suffer from seven "neglected tropical diseases" (NTDs). Your participation will support the End7 campaign to rid the developing world of these seven parasitic diseases and end the suffering of over a half a billion suffering children. With your help, we are going to target these parasitic "beasts" in at least three post-Ebola countries in West Africa. Please visit www.End7.org to learn more about what your donation will accomplish!
And then there are the SHIRTS! We have the one and only Tom Felton locked in the dungeons, signing each t-shirt you purchase on Booster.com! Okay... not really. But he has graciously agreed to add his autograph to the design in the hopes that we can do even more to prevent these diseases in more West African nations. Please help us support this amazing effort by getting an event shirt! If you don't, his father WILL hear about this. You can get your shirt at: www.booster.com/fantasticbeasts5k
