The prescription for another virtual 5K is MORE COWBELL! Mondays Dark, Las Vegas’ premier fundraising event, slips on its sneakers and rocks some running gear for their first-ever charity run, the Mondays Dark 5K Cowbell Jammer. Mondays Dark friends, family and fans can participate in this unique fun run at their leisure throughout the month of October and “compete” with other runners for fun, prizes, and raising money for their favorite Mondays Dark charity.
The Cowbell Jammer benefits 121 local charities with one run. Registered runners can choose their favorite Mondays Dark charity to support during the online registration process. Runners can participate anytime morning, noon or night during October. There’s no limit on runners or how much is donated to the charities in the Mondays Dark family. Participants also have the opportunity to face off in scavenger hunts and compete for weekly prizes in fun categories such as “Best Halloween Costume,” VGK Stanley Cup Playoff runs, and even “Furthest Distance from The Space” taking place throughout the month. Weekly competitions will be announced via social media @MondaysDark. Registration is $50 per person and available online at www.mondaysdark.com. Each registered runner receives a sweet Mondays Dark 5K Cowbell Jammer finisher medal, a print-at-home runner’s bib.
“Anyone who’s attended a Mondays Dark event is well aware the song of the night is always the Cowbell Jam,” says Mark Shunock, founder of The Space and creator of Mondays Dark. “We decided to take this magnificent Mondays Dark moment and turn it into a new way we can raise money for our local nonprofit organizations. These organizations are in dire need of fundraising activities and assistance now more than ever.”
