Alton Virtual Race Packet
Welcome to the virtual race packet for the 12th Annual Alton Miles for Meso 5K Run & 3K Fun Run/Walk. The below links are virtual copies of several items included in the physical race packets. In addition, there are an assortment of online resources available to participants of the 2020 race.
Get Involved Virtually
Don’t forget to share your photos and videos as you walk or run your own course, starting Sept. 26 through Oct. 2. Use the hashtag #MilesForMeso. Tag Miles for Meso on Facebook and Twitter.
In addition to running or walking in the event, you can also do the following virtual activities to help spread awareness.
Update Your Profile Photo
Another easy way to help spread awareness is to update your Facebook profile with our new #MilesForMeso profile frame. Updating your profile photo is an easy way to spread awareness about the race and the reason why we’re all running or walking on National Mesothelioma Awareness Day. Anyone can do this, even if they’re not registered. Just go to the Facebook frame page in the below link. Search for “Miles for Meso” and select.
Connect with Miles for Meso Community on Social
While we can’t all be together on race day this year, hosting a virtual race means we don’t have to wait to connect. Follow Miles for Meso on Facebook to share in all our virtual activities planned during Race Week, Sept. 26 to Oct. 2.
Also, consider liking the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization and Simmons Hanly Conroy pages as well. Next, just follow along with the conversation by commenting, liking and sharing. All while using the hashtag #MilesForMeso.
Sign the Petition to Ban Asbestos
This year, the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization asks supporters to help promote awareness by signing and sharing a petition that would call on the EPA to take action on asbestos in the United States. The petition is available on Change.org and has already been signed by over 142,000 supporters.
How Your Support Matters
To better represent the important work Team ADAO has accomplished over the years, this 2018 Impact Graphic showcases our progress and strengths in words, numbers, and graphics.
Linda says, “I’m sharing this because I am proud of what we’ve done — and you should be too. We are who we are because of YOU. Our powerful and diverse community consists of asbestos victims, scientists, trade unions, public health advocates, donors, and sponsors, who have and continue to generously give time and dollars to fund ADAO’s education, advocacy, and community support efforts.”
