Year of the Fun Walk 2019—Happy Birthday Harry! (July)
My Year of the Fun Walk run for July was the Happy Birthday Harry virtual run.
The Happy Birthday Harry virtual run was a virtual run to celebrate Harry Potter’s birthday on July 31. It was the first annual Happy Birthday Harry run, with the option of five distances to complete: 1 mile, 5km, 10km, 13.1 miles or 26.2 miles.
Because Harry Potter is an orphan, Moon Joggers donated at least 15% of every registration fee to The Global Orphan Project, a charity that aims to provide care for vulnerable children and prevent child abandonment.
Although there was the option to complete the run in either July or August, the idea was to complete it on July 31. I naturally decided to complete the 5km run on July 31 and I did in 56 minutes, 44 seconds.
