Indy Urban Acres, a project of the Indianapolis Parks Foundation, is a collection of four organic farms used to empower and educate people by providing equitable access to free, high quality produce. Since 2011, Indy Urban Acres has grown into a multi-disciplinary farm that works to inspire transformational change within Indy’s food system by providing food justness for low-income families, educating thousands of youth through tours and farm-to-plate workshops, providing community engagement to thousands of volunteers and groups, and teaching teens valuable job skills.
This year Pints for Parks is putting that 3lb pile of squish in your head to the test! The last Thursday of every month from 6-8pm we will be at a different bar, with newly tapped beers, and fresh trivia for you and your crew! As always, $1 per beer is donated to the Indianapolis Parks Foundation and NOW your $5 trivia team registration is too! Come thirsty and thinky!
- Trivia will be general pop culture and current event questions with a slight focus beer and parks, because those are two of our most favorite things.
- Prizes will be awarded to the top teams for their outstanding brain power.
About this Event
5K YOUR WAY
5K Your Way is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a 5K, 3.1 miles, roughly 3,500 steps, or about an hour of your time (at a walking pace), that can be accomplished any way you prefer. We get it, pants are a burden these days and you certainly don’t need them for a Zoom call, so why would we make you put them on for a 5K? This virtual 5K is for those who unabashedly say, “I woke up like this!” And, although we probably could have guessed by your matted hair and pillow imprint on your face, it’s all good because we’re in this together.
Run, walk, ride, rollerblade, cartwheel, skip, skateboard, yoga, do dishes, binge watch your favorite show, meditate, or just sleep. Basically, we encourage you to do you. Knock out this 5K by finishing 3.1 miles, getting 3500 steps, or a dedicating an hour of time to your favorite activity.
Post a photo or tons of photos on social media to show us how you 5k! Just mention @indianapolisparksfoundation on Facebook or @indyparksfnd on Instagram and Twitter and use hashtag #5kyourway.
This 5K is your way! So, whenever you want!
- a comfy t-shirt that displays our Lady Victory slaying as usual
- a finishers medal
- an invite to a 5k Your Way finishers party
And most importantly, your participation directly supports the Indianapolis Parks Foundation and our work to demonstrate the transformational power of parks.
