Riverside Nature Center in Kerrville has re-invented an annual fundraising venture for the nonprofit nature center as a “Virtual Run and Walk,” and invites all area residents to participate.

The virtual run/walk can be done anytime between Monday, Sept 7 and Saturday, Sept. 12.

“Show your #KerrvilleStrong support for the Riverside Nature Center on our one-time virtual 5k,” said Becky Etzler, RNC director and her staff and volunteers.

Choose a 5k distance close to you. Visit www.riversidenaturecenter.org for route suggestions.

The fundraising part is the registration fee to participate.

Registration per person is $30 from Sept. 1 through Sept. 11; and $35 on Sept. 12, the final day of the event.

To register, visit the website www.riversidenaturecenter.org.

Registered entrants are guaranteed a neck gaiter.

Walk or run the chosen route during that designated week. Take along a smart phone or camera; and take photo along the way or when finished. Then share it on Run For Riverside’s Facebook or Instagram pages, or email the photo to runforriverside@gmail.com.

Send in run times, and they will be posted on AtheleteGuild.com.

Gaiter Swag pick-up is Sept. 11, between noon and 7 p.m. at RNC, 150 Lemos St., Kerrville.
