Words are powerful tools, and like implements of creativity, they must be wielded with care. Our community is built upon the idea that all are welcome, all are magical, and all have intrinsic value. PHRC would not be what it is, nor could it have accomplished a fraction of what it has done to date, without the collective effort of the vast, diverse, and universally kindhearted global collective that occupy our virtual space. The good that these altruistic individuals […]

This is your chance to register for those events you might have missed in 2019 and register for the amazing Felix Challenge medal!

(Reposted from MuggleNet.com August 27, 2019; Written by Felicia Grady) MuggleNet’s 20th-anniversary celebrations have included everything from our series of top 20 listicles and ultimate “Year in Review” articles to our recently launched Magical Books for Muggle Teachers campaign, a fundraiser to buy Harry Potter or other fantasy books for teachers, who can then use them in their curricula. Besides giving back to teachers, many of whom were responsible for instilling a love of Potter in us or our children, we also wanted to give back to our friends at Potterhead […]
Potterhead Running Club is pleased to present our sixth event of 2019: Platform Year Five! It’s back! Our annual nine-and-three-quarter-kilometer virtual running event returns to celebrate Harry’s sixth year with a beautiful new medal representing his adventures getting back to Hogwarts. No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, the medal isn’t ‘missing’ a piece…it’s just partially covered by an invisibility cloak! The back features Diagon Alley, Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes, the Petrificus Totalus spell, and even a few wrackspurts. Your event […]
There are so many small things in life we often take for granted. A shower. Clean clothes. Good conversation. Imagine if tomorrow all those simple, small things were gone. Imagine that tomorrow morning you were homeless with nothing but a small bag of possessions and a few dollars in your pocket. Those simple, small things would become luxuries. The value of a shower, clean clothes, and a conversation with a friend would mean more than ever before. Potterhead Running Club […]
Not to “captcha” your attention, but…this is your ONLY Event Six hint! In fact, to add another layer of complexity to this deep, labyrinthine mystery (whatever could it be?), this is also a hint to the next charity partner. Return to this exact spot tomorrow at 7pm Eastern to meet our amazing new charity partner, and then Saturday at noon Eastern, the sixth event begins!
Potterhead Running Club is pleased to present our fifth event of 2019: A Quick Pygmy Up 5k! For our fifth event of 2019, we’re celebrating one of Fred & George’s greatest (and definitely the cutest) creations: The Pygmy Puff! Bred as miniature versions of Puffskeins, Pygmy Puffs became something of a craze in the wizarding world. They are known for eating anything from leftovers to spiders. The most well-known Pygmy Puff was the one Ginny bought and named Arnold. […]
If you are a parent/aunt/uncle, you know the most joyous day is the day a new baby enters your life. You also know the most terrifying thing is finding out there is a medical issue with the child. You want the child diagnosed as early and as accurately as possible to give them best possible chance at a better future. Cerebral Palsy (CP) is the most common physical disability in childhood and it affects 3.6/100 children in the US with […]

Tomorrow we announce the next charity partner, and then at noon EDT on the 13th, you’ll have all the answers you seek! Stay tuned!
