QOV Take 5: Run, Walk, Block

Join us on May 18th for Take 5: Run, Walk, Block

It’s time to lace up those running or walking shoes, or set up your sewing machine and iron, to Run, Walk, Block for a great cause…the Quilts of Valor Foundation is pleased to invite YOU to join us in our annual, VIRTUAL event!!! The Quilts of Valor Take 5: Run, Walk, Block will raise essential funds to help advance the Mission of our Foundation: to cover Service Members and Veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor. We have awarded over 370,000 Quilts of Valor in 2024.

Thank you SEW much to our 11,000 (and growing) volunteers nationwide who donate their time and talents to make it possible to award these beautiful quilts to deserving individuals who have – or still are – serving our country! Won’t you join us?

WHO: Runners, walkers, sewists and quilters of ALL ages and abilities are invited to participate!

We encourage QOVF Groups to use Take 5 as a group fundraiser. To fundraise for your QOVF group, first register as a race participant. Once registered, you can download the group fundraising packet from the Member dashboard and use the forms in the packet to solicit pledges and donations. A Take 5 flier is included, that can be shared as needed. Questions can be sent to take5@qovf.org.

WHAT: This is a VIRTUAL race/event, so you have the flexibility to participate in a safe manner that is convenient for you. The Take 5 concept allows you to scale up or down, as well as get creative! For instance, you can run 5 miles, race/walk 5K, walk the dog 5 blocks, run/walk multiple 5K (or 5 block) intervals with 5-minute breaks. If you’re a sewist or quilter, you can sew 5 quilt blocks, sew blocks for 5 hours, sew blocks with a “5-chocolates reward.” You get the idea! Have FUN with it!

WHERE: With our VIRTUAL race/event, you can choose where you want to Run, Walk, Block. Maybe your neighborhood or home is the most convenient location. Perhaps you have a favorite park or trail for running or walking. Maybe you’d like to safely meet with friends or family for sewing blocks. You decide!

WHEN:  Our “official” date is May 18, 2024 on Armed Forces Day.

WHY: Quilts = Healing, which we see and hear time and time again. Enjoy some healthy FUN, while showing appreciation and making a difference in someone’s life!!!

HOW: Register here to secure your spot in the QOVF Take 5! Registration fee is $35.00.

Sponsorship opportunities are available.
