We have received word that employees are eligible for 250 BeWell Vitality points for completing the Homes for Animal Heroes Virtual 5K. To receive points, individuals must submit documentation via the BCM BeWell portal or Vitality Today app. 

We have been informed that a photo wearing the race bib is required as documentation. 

If you already participated in the run, email with your name and address and we will send you a bib to take a photo. Or, download and print a PDF of the bib.

If you are registering now to complete the run either as an individual or a team, we have added a place on the online registration page for you to indicate need for a race bib.
