During these uncertain times, we invite you to participate in the Witte 5K virtually from your own neighborhood or favorite trail! When participating, please keep six feet of distance from others and respect local safety guidelines. We urge you not to run in groups or with others and appreciate participation while meeting the current guidelines of local and state authorities.

Not only are we going virtual but we are expanding the 5K to encompass the entire weekend! The virtual walk/run/bike will be held over the three-day Memorial Day weekend to encourage proper social distancing and adherence to state and local guidelines. While it has been tradition for each participant to walk or run 3.2 miles, this year Witte friends everywhere are encouraged to choose a distance with which they are comfortable.

The Witte Museum is all about health and wellness and we hope you will join us in getting out of the house with your family, leashed pets, or on your own to enjoy the outdoors with the Witte’s 5K and Dino Dash! Since we can’t walk/run/bike together, we encourage you to enjoy the health benefits of exercise and the outdoors all while practicing social distancing. What better way to escape cabin fever!

Secondly, you can help the Witte even more through the new “Ambassador Fundraising” where you & your friends by raising additional funds. It’s easy and it’s fun! Your support of the Witte 5K and Dino Dash provides vital funds for our Emergency Fund that your museum so desperately needs!
