2020 “Boxer Brief Stay Away 5K” is in the books!

 The 2020 Boxer Brief 5K transformed to the “Boxer Brief Stay Away 5K” due to COVID-19. What emerged was an entertaining event which helped community members from across the country to safely participate and bring colorectal cancer awareness into their local neighborhoods! The virtual walk/run was held over the weekend of June 6-7th.

Venue:  Anywhere! Walk or run your 3.1 miles anywhere. Be mindful about physical distancing if you choose to be in a small group under 10 team members. The landing site for participants to share photos is on our Facebook event page.  If posting photos, please click you are “Going” to event and use the hash tag #boxerbriefstayaway5K.

NEW Packet Pickup was at Richmond City Stadium, Home of the Richmond Kickers, from Friday, June 5th from 3:00pm – 6:00pm and Saturday, June 6th from 8:00am – 11:00am.  If you missed the pickup or registered after 11am on Saturday, June 6th, please email info@hcb2.org to schedule a new time to collect your items.

Additional Info:  The “Boxer Brief 5K” has been HCB2’s largest educational and awareness raising event for colorectal cancer prevention since 2013.  In 2019, we had  700 participants, 60 volunteers, and countless spectators. The virtual 2020 “Boxer Brief Stay Away 5K” had 360 participants, 15 volunteers and it’s hard to estimate a spectator number due to being in 18 states and also Canada.

We hope to be able to gather in 2021. We miss the handshakes, hugs, and high fives! More photos will be posted
