We came back to the Platform for 2019! Our annual nine-and-three-quarter-kilometer virtual running event returns to celebrate Harry’s sixth year with a beautiful 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. Registrations included the awesome 3″ medal, custom sublimated ribbon, and personalized digital bib!⁣

Potterhead Running Club was thrilled to announce our Charity Partner for this event as Orange Sky Australia…our very first Australian Charity Partner!⁣
⁣
The mission of Orange Sky Australia is to provide a platform for every day Australians to connect through a regular laundry and shower service via a fleet of 29 vans all over Australia. Their focus is on creating a safe, positive and supportive environment for people who are too often ignored or who feel disconnected from the community. Their volunteers are not social workers or experts on homelessness — they are empathetic listeners and great conversationalists.⁣
⁣
In other exciting news, Ragnar Relay returned as our co-sponsor for the Platform event! They promoting the event to their running community and made a generous donation to our charity partner! Over 140 PHRC and Fanthropy teams participated in Ragnar events in 2019, so this partnership is truly one of our favorites.
