Starting this year, the 5K at re:Invent is joining forces with a sibling AWS event, the 4K 4Charity Fun Run. While the event distance and name are new, the start time, start location at the Mirage, and fast out-and-back course remain the same. Proceeds from re:Invent support Girls Who Code and the American Heart Association.
Created by AWS Elemental in 2014, the 4K 4Charity Fun Run Series has raised more than $500,000 in gross proceeds for charity. Run co-founder Sam Blackman, who was also AWS Elemental CEO and co-founder, took a leading role in advocating diversity in the tech industry and championed the run series to increase awareness and support for this vital issue. On Aug. 27, 2017, Sam died unexpectedly at age 41. Please join us in honoring his legacy, and in giving increased diversity and inclusion a run at re:Invent 2017. You will make every step count!
