About this campaign
Hogwarts Running Club is pleased to present our sixth event of 2018:
Platform Year 5!
It's back! Our annual event returns to celebrate Harry's fifth year getting back to Hogwarts! We've revamped the look and added beautiful new artwork representing Harry's adventures. The Dementor attack, the Howler, facing the Wizengamot (and Umbridge...), and his very first trip to 12 Grimmauld Place.
For a fun twist on Year 5 and the prophesy of the Chosen One, here is your event shirt for the Platform Year 5! Proceeds from the shirt orders go to support our Charity Partner.
The Hogwarts Express takes children home....it took an orphan home...and we're going to do the same! Hogwarts Running Club is humbled to announce the charity partner for this event is RODS - Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome! RODS' mission is simple. They promote the adoption of orphans with Down syndrome by raising adoption grant funds, one child at a time, and by participating in organized, athletic races and awareness events. They literally run for orphans! The funds they raise cover a large portion of the expense to get children from orphanages in the developing world to forever homes in the US and Canada. RODS' target for each child is $15,000. The Headmaster cast an arithmancy spell and divined the magic number of registrations required to cover the adoption of one orphan: 975.
Wait a minute...975 registrations.... 975 ... 9.75 ... 9 3/4!!!
Ok. That's gotta be magic.
Hogwarts Running Club has selected SEVEN orphans to support. If we are successful, seven beautiful children will get out of orphanages and to their forever families. This event is literally saving lives. Visit https://rods.org to see their success stories and get a glimpse of the future for these seven kiddos!
We're also excited to have a co-sponsor for this event! Ragnar is joining forces with HRC to help spread the word and let know people about our effort to get these seven kids to their forever homes!
The suggested run date for Platform Year 5 is Wednesday, September 12th, the anniversary of Harry's first flying lesson and the day he became the Gryffindor seeker! Remember, this is only a fun suggestion. You are welcome to complete your 9.75 kilometers/6.058 miles whenever you want!
Registration closes at midnight on September 23rd (or early morning on the 24th depending on your Time Zone).
