All virtual race participants will a receive tech shirt (hat in the 2K), finishers medal, and race bib mailed to them upon completion. For groups of 8 or more who plan to run together, we will endeavour to send the “swag” so you will have it in time for your “race.” There is no need to run on race day, but preferably within a week before or after. What a great new Thanksgiving tradition this would make! As all virtual race participants are entitled to the Free For Fundraisers free race registration for raising a $150 or the VIP Swag bag for raising $1,000 or more (some limitations may apply to the VIP swag bag). The time is now to register and start fundraising.

A few points to keep in mind as you work towards your goal of completing your Virtual Art In Motion race for 2021. 

Pick your distance! You are not required to complete any set race. Go 2, 5, 10, or more kilometers in your quest to complete your Virtual Art In Motion.

Complete your race between October 10th and October 24th. Sure, you can have a few more days if you need them, but the fall colours won’t last forever, so get out there and run/walk and enjoy the great outdoors.

Free for Fundraisers and VIP Swag bags are still available! Raise $150 or more and your entry fee is refunded. As well, raise $1,000 or more and receive an Art In Motion VIP Swag bag full of great goodies for helping us raise money for kids with Arthritis through SickKids Foundation and the Dr. Bonnie Cameron Post-Secondary Scholarship at the Toronto Foundation. Fundraising pages were set up when you registered. Further updates are coming, but Art In Motion Participants have already raised almost $20,000! Awesome work. Thank you.

We keep the fundraising pages open for an extra week to help those who are close reach their goal. Refunds are generally processed in the week following the race and are usually refunded directly to the participants credit card.

Check Out Our Fundraising Tips

We understand that asking someone for money can feel like a tricky thing to do, but with some practice you’ll be a pro in no time! Here are some tips to make your fundraising a little less stressful.

 
1. Let the world know what you are doing!
 
Start by telling everyone (your family, friends, teachers, coworkers, neighbours, etc) about your goal, what you plan to do, and why you are doing it. Online donations are eligible for a charitable donation receipt. (Cash, and cheque donations, too!) 2. Move it online. Go social!  On-Line fundraising is most peoples “go to” for soliciting and donating. So go for it! Get social and post, tweet, and email your personal online donation link to everyone you can think of. You can never tell who will give you a donation and who won’t. Or how far your message may go. No harm in asking.
 
3. Get face to face.
 
There is no question that while it may feel easier to email or call, sometimes the most effective way to inspire someone to make a donation is to talk to them face to face. Also, Aunt Matilda (or Matti as she likes to be called) doesn’t exactly work her smartphone like your teenager does. You sometimes just can’t reach everyone electronically.
 
4. Educate yourself on the issues.
 
Get knowledgeable and passionate about the cause and explain your connection to it. Here are some powerful resources on arthritis in children. http://cassieandfriends.ca/resources/
 
5. Be creative.
 
This is where some people shine! Host an event like a bake sake, garage sale, sell friendship bracelets, hold a bottle drive – the possibilities are endless! Ask your employer if they will support you with events at work, have a donation matching program with SickKids, or perhaps they would like to become a Corporate VIP sponsor highlighting their commitment and Corporate Social Responsibility to such a worthy cause.
 
6. Never give up!
 
If someone says no, move along and ask someone else! Never be discouraged. You never know who will donate (or who won’t), but you are doing an amazing thing helping Children in a difficult circumstance. Most of all remember that we appreciate all that you are doing to support the Art In Motion 10K and the Department of Rheumatology at SickKids.

We understand that asking someone for money can feel like a tricky thing to do, but with some practice you’ll be a pro in no time! Here are some tips to make your fundraising a little less stressful.

Corporate VIP Entry

  • $1,000 for up to four VIP Entries

Corporate VIP Entries entitle the Corporate participant to the same VIP privileges listed above without the fundraising commitments! Corporate entries pay $1,000 for up to four VIP entries. This entry fee helps support the VIP fundraising program and the Dr. Bonnie Cameron Post-Secondary Scholarship. Please contact info@artinmotion10k.com prior to registering.

We are excited to have corporate groups participate and consider ourselves to be the evolution of the golf tournament! For the cost of a charity golf tournament, why not secure four VIP Entries to the Art In Motion 10K. The corporate participant will get to spend quality time with their client while running, dining, and, finally, touring an amazing collection of Canadian Art.

For example, those anticipating a finish of 40 minutes or faster will start first, in groups of 10, every minute until fully started. They will be followed by those anticipating a 45 minute finish, in groups of 10 every minute. And so on, until all participants have started the race. 

The 10K race is a point to point race ending in Bindertwine Park.
 
10K Participants wishing to have a checked bag available at the finish line must ensure that their bag is placed in the U-Haul Truck parked in the Start/Finish Area. Use the tear away strip from your bib to identify your bag. Your bag will be transported to the finish line for you. 

There will be bottled water, Gatorade, medal, a prepackaged food bag, and your checked bag made available to you at the finish.
