During these times of uncertainty, we remain committed to providing inspiring opportunities to promote a healthy active lifestyle and wellness events for all. We have been thoughtfully monitoring the global situation and pondering whether to move forward with our annual ABSF membership promotion or not. Through the encouragement of the Birkie community, we are moving forward, as we do each April, in hopes of providing some normalcy during otherwise uncertain times. In today’s climate, we realize that becoming an ABSF member or registering for a Birkie event might be right for some of you and not for others. With that in mind, if you become an ABSF member between April 1-7, 2020, and would like to register early for your February race, and secure a bib with your name on it, the opportunity is available to you. If not, that’s okay, too. While the ABSF’s annual membership drive is an important component of the overall financial health of our non-profit organization, this year, the health, strength, and resiliency of the Birkie community is more important to us than ever before.
