Our second event of 2018 honors the Doctor's longest-serving companion: Handles! For 300 years, Handles was with the 11th Doctor on Trenzalore, keeping him company as he defended the town of Christmas.
The Doctor couldn't get the parts to keep Handles going, but through our partnership with @enablethefuture, we're going to provide the parts to raise up dozens of children!
We are honored to announce that our charity partner for the #Handles5k is Enable the Future (e-NABLE) - a global community of amazing volunteers who use 3-D printers to create custom hands and arms for those who were born missing fingers or who have lost them due to war, disease or natural disaster. The e-NABLE Community is made up of teachers, students, engineers, scientists, medical professionals, tinkerers, designers, parents, children, scout troops, artists, philanthropists, dreamers, coders, makers and everyday people who just want to make a difference and help to “Give The World A Helping Hand.” And Whovian Running Club plans to use the Handles 5k to give these children an "upgrade" with the proceeds going to their backlog of requests for prosthetics in Sierra Leone, India, and South America where the needs are greatest!
All participants will get this amazing 4" 3D molded Handles medal, on a full-color sublimated satin ribbon with Velcro closure, and a customized digital bib to download and print at home.
The suggested run date for this event is Sunday, 11 March. Why? Because it's the birth date of one of our favorite actors - the amazing John Barrowman! This is just a fun suggestion, you are welcome to complete your 5k whenever you want! All medals will be mailed after registration closes in March.
