Join the 2nd Annual Virtual #RESNET5K Race for One Tree Pledge

Apr 11, 2022


It’s time for the 2nd annual virtual #RESNET5K Race!

This year, participants are raising money for the RESNET campaign with One Tree Pledge to plant 300,000 trees by the year 2023, in honor of the recent #3MHERSandCounting milestone!

DYK: 300,000 planted trees are estimated to capture roughly 3 million pounds of carbon per year over their lifetime? Over 119,000 trees have been planted in our campaign so far!

When you participate in this year’s #RESNET5K, each dollar donated will plant 1 tree! Here’s how you can participate on your own or on a team:

1. Visit https://secure.givelively.org/donate/residential-energy-services-networks-inc/resnet-5k-for-one-tree-pledge-for-3mhersandcounting/fundraisers/options to pick your fundraising option

2.  On your own: Create your fundraising page, share the link created with potential donors, and complete the #RESNET2022 Virtual 5k challenge (3.1 miles) while socially distancing and wearing a face covering if needed.

3.  Create a team fundraising page and recruit coworkers, family, and friends. Or make it a friendly competition in your office! Because it’s virtual, anyone from anywhere can participate. Share the custom team link provided to encourage your social networks to donate.

4. Remember to take a picture of you, your course, or your running time and share it on social media, and tag RESNET with the hashtag #RESNET5k.

You must complete the 5K anytime from Earth Day, April 22 to May 31, in honor of this year’s virtual #RESNET2022 Building Performance Conference. So start setting your goals TODAY!

And this year, there are prizes!  Anyone who participates in the fundraiser and raises at least $1 will be entered in a drawing to win $50. The top fundraiser from the top team will win $100. The top fundraiser from the second-highest fundraising team will win $75!
