Run with Across 2023

🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️ The Marathon Tradition 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️
Over the past 11 years, Across has been closely involved with youth, and a significant number of them have now become parents of one or two children. In light of this, we are excited to extend our invitation this year, aiming to make running more accessible and attainable for our extended Across friends and family.

🎉 Across U-hub’s 21st Anniversary 🎉
This year, we’re celebrating our 21st anniversary, and we want YOU to be part of it! Join us in person on October 22, 2023 (Sunday), at Risebrough Park for a thrilling 5K run to mark this milestone.

🌟 Virtual Community Challenge 🌟
But that’s not all! We’ve set an ambitious goal: collectively run 21K virtually as a community to reach a total of 2023 kilometers. Let’s make a lasting impact by fundraising together until October 31, 2023.

📱 Tracking Made Easy 📱
To keep us connected, we’re using the Nike Run Club App to track everyone’s mileage. It’s simple, fun, and it keeps us motivated towards our shared target.

💪 Let’s Run Together! 💪
To prepare and bond, we’ve scheduled practice runs every Sunday from September 17 to October 29, running from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm at Across U-hub. Lace-up your shoes and join us!

🤝 Fundraise with Us 🤝
Remember, your participation and generosity matter. You can support our cause by using the donation link here. Together, we can make a meaningful difference.

Let’s run for change, run for youth, and run for Across U-hub! Mark your calendars and get ready for an unforgettable journey. Together, we’re unstoppable! 🏁🏆🏁
