SOCK IT TO 2021 and kick off your spring by joining us in supporting the Community Mediation Center (CMC) by participating in our inaugural Peace Out Virtual 5K Run/Walk AND 15K Bike event.
The race will take place between April 10th through April 24th 2021.Sign Up Here
The “ask” is easy: Just $35 to join until March, when the registration fee increases to $40. The virtual race event takes place wherever you would like it to take place: at a track, in your neighborhood, on the way to your favorite coffee shop, on the elliptical while watching TV, or on the couch with your feet up. (And yes, there is a way to simply donate using an ottoman and an iPad for those who are recuperative or more contemplative! You still must post pictures.) When you’re finished, post your results in the same place you registered. We have several prizes in store for those who participate. Dogs and children are free!
- Your net donation will triple thanks to a generous anonymous donor!
- And with each Peace Out registration, the registrant will get to pick out a free pair of Bombas, the best running and walking socks in the universe. If you register early, you will have your socks by the time the virtual run/walk/bike happens.
- And paying it forward, for every registration, Bombas will send a pair of these wonderful socks to Compassion Closet of East Tennessee to give to adoptive and foster families in our area.
Participants will register, post their results when the running, walking or biking is done, and then check in to see if they’ve won a prize. It’s also where you can send your friends and family to sign up! Please help us spread the word about this virtual race.
This fundraiser is to benefit Community Mediation Center’s local and statewide work. We are remotely mediating cases for our own Knox County Sessions, Juvenile and state Circuit and Chancery courts, as well as helping law enforcement, social service agencies, schools, churches and neighborhoods. In December, CMC was asked by our Tennessee Supreme Court and Alternative Dispute Resolution Commission o serve as a “hub” for the courts in the Eastern Grand Division to assign cases to Rule 31 mediators willing to take on backlogged cases to mediate pro bono, through the Tennessee Supreme Court’s MediateTN ADR Plan. Out of crisis comes opportunity to demonstrate how useful mediation can be to our county, state and municipal courts and the people they serve!
