Spencer Foundation Virtual Run

Each year at the Annual US RIMS Conference, the Spencer Foundation holds a 5K FunRun to raise funds for their programs in support of risk management education, including scholarships, internships, and grants.  Although they had to cancel the in-person race this year, they have decided to create a VIRTUAL event, and now supporters, around the world, can participate – without traveling to Denver!  They would love for you all to be involved in some form, to bring the industry together in a unique way and show solidarity for our students and our fellow professionals.  

 The Oregon RIMS Chapter is a longtime financial supporter of Spencer Foundation and the board will be participating in the run as well and we would love for your to join our team!! Please see our team page here: fundraising page

 

There are many ways you can support. Any and all of the below efforts would be very much appreciated, and would enable Spencer to fulfill its mission even in these challenging times. 

  1. Register to run!  Sign up here and run on May 21, being sure to post about your run journey and why you chose to participate to social media with the hashtag #SpencerVirtual5K.   You can also create a virtual team and run as a group!
  2. Help raise money!  Visit Spencer's fundraising page and create your own page, allowing family, friends, and colleagues to support you directly.
