A virtually incredible Rock Your Socks 5K!

11.09.20

From Baltimore to California, nearly 200 runners, walkers, dancers, hikers and more set off on their own fitness adventures as part of the Rock Your Socks at Home/Virtual 5K on Saturday, November 7, and Sunday, November 8. Check out all the wild photos below.

Together, you raised nearly $60,000. That's enough to cover a full year of care for 120 of our neighbors without homes.

Relive the magic of the opening ceremonies...
