Hey there, welcome to my SGT Virtual 5K fundraising page!

As many of you know, my little sister, Emily, has been participating in Special Gifts Theatre for many years now and it has had such a amazing impact on her life! If you don't know about this awesome organization, their mission is "to foster self-confidence, social, speech and language skills in individuals with disabilities, using educational and therapeutic techniques with the stage as the platform, integrating creativity and fun." You can also find more information by visiting their website at

This year, SGT decided to do their annual 5K a little differently. Due to the current environment, the 5K has been moved to a virtual 5K and you can participate in it anytime and anywhere between Sunday, October 4th through Sunday, October 18th! And the BEST part is that you don't have to do a typical 5K run, you can do this 5K YOUR way! So if you want to dance, then dance! If you want to bike, swim, hula hoop, golf, roller blade, or any other cardio you can think of? YOU DO YOU! 

Please help me reach my goal and support SGT! Whether you donate, participate, or simply share my post/page, thank you! You are helping grow an organization that is so impactful for so many kids and young adults!

Thank you for your support of SGT --- although this ongoing pandemic impacts all of us, SGT has found a way to look in a different direction to raise funds--yet keep our annual tradition to host a 5k. Luckily, our "super-powers" are adaptability and creativity!

And remember, your generosity helps to foster self-confidence, social and language skills, both on and off the stage, for all of our SGT students!
