Frequently Asked Questions
How has Covid-19 Impacted 30 For Freedom?
Covid-19 has created significant uncertainty in our world. Events worldwide have been postponed and cancelled. In light of this, with participant safety at the forefront, 30 For Freedom has been rescheduled to July 4th and will become a virtual run.
What is a virtual run?
A virtual run is a run that can happen at any location you choose! Run on your treadmill at home, on the sidewalk in your neighborhood, or the awesome trails at the state park nearby. You get to run your own race while maintaining social distancing standards.
Why is 30 For Freedom doing a virtual run this year?
In these uncertain times, we wanted to give you something certain. We did not want to reschedule the event with the possibility that it may have to be postponed or rescheduled again. Moving to a virtual event allows us to be #VirtuallyUnstoppable.
If the run is virtual, why do I still have to pay a registration fee?
We are committed to providing as many of the expected services as possible. The costs of running the event on location vs. virtual are similar.
All extra monies received from registrations go directly to the anti-trafficking organizations 30 for Freedom supports.
I no longer want to participate, can I get a registration refund?
Since all extra funds from registrations are donated to the anti-trafficking cause through Venture 501(c)3, registrations are categorized as donations and are non-refundable.
If the run is virtual, why should I register with a chapter?
Registering with a chapter gives you some great, additional benefits!
1. You can conveniently pick up your race packet at your chapter location.
2. By picking up your packet at a chapter, 30 For Freedom doesn’t have to pay for
shipping. Ultimately, this will allow more money to go toward rescuing victims from
3. You also get to see the collective impact of your chapter’s miles and funds raised!
How will I receive my race swag?
On Saturday, June 27 we will have “packet pick ups” at the chapter you registered with. Check out our official social media channels for pick up time windows.
The registration deadline is May 10 to be guaranteed your 2020 30 for Freedom shirt, finisher medal, race number.
If you signed up without a chapter, we will mail your packet to the address on file from your registration.
How do I update my address?
Please email your correct address to Jeremy Collier, Venture Miles Manager: firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I need to/want to do my run on a different day?
Flexibility is important during this time! While we want as many participants as possible to complete the run on July 4th “Virtually Together”, we understand some of you may need or want to complete it on a different day.
All runs will need to be completed by July 12th for your miles and funds to count toward the fundraiser.
I registered for 30 For Freedom before it became a virtual run. What do I need to do now?
We have taken care of everything for you! Your registration has automatically been transferred.
What about my fundraiser?
We have manually updated your fundraiser to a new end date of July 12th. The cause is the same, and the funds are still going to the same place! You’re good to go!
