About SOME (So Others Might Eat):
SOME (So Others Might Eat) is a community-based organization that exists to help the poor and homeless of our nation's capital. We meet the immediate daily needs of the people we serve with food, clothing, and healthcare. We help break the cycle of homelessness by offering services, such as affordable housing, job training, addiction treatment, and counseling, to the poor, the elderly, and individuals with mental illness. 


What is a Virtual 5K?
A virtual 5K race is one that you run or walk on your own, at any time of the day, in any place you like! The only rules are that you must complete the distance (5k/3.1mi) and you have to do it during the specific time period. Virtual races are a way to stay connected with one another when you can't get together for a normal 5K race.

The winner of the over 20 divisions will win two (2) premium tickets to a D.C. United match in 2021.

The winner of the women's and men's under 20 divisions will receive two (2) premium tickets to a D.C. United match in 2021.
