Running for a Cause.

Popular Bank is proud to invite runners to participate in the 2021 Popular Virtual 5K race. The event challenges participants to complete a 5-kilometer distance at their own pace for a chance to win prizes and support local community organizations with the mission to end domestic violence. Proceeds will benefit nonprofit organizations including the Chapman Partnership in South Florida, Violence Intervention Program, Inc. in New York and Taller Salud and Casa Protegida Julia de Burgos in Puerto Rico.

“We’re very proud to invite our employees, customers, and community members to participate in the Popular Virtual 5K,” said Popular Bank Chief Operating Officer Manuel Chinea. “This event allows us to spend time outdoors with the added benefit of fundraising for these amazing organizations. We are thrilled that this event will benefit the valuable youth programs of this organization and positively impact our communities across New York, New Jersey, South Florida, and Puerto Rico.”

The Popular Virtual 5K race will run from June 1 – August 15, 2021. Participants can complete the Popular Virtual 5K anytime, anywhere and will log their walk/run using a tracking device of their choice. Once completed, they will upload a screen grab documenting their virtual race results. As part of this special event, Popular will send the first 500 race participants commemorative medals and bandanas via mail. Additionally, each participant will automatically enter a sweepstakes to win a Popular Gift Card worth $250, $500, or $1,000.

This is the 17th year for the Popular 5K, and the second time the race will be exclusively hosted virtually due to the COVID-19 health crisis. Since its inception, the race has inspired thousands of runners and has donated more than $770,000 to local and non-profit organizations.
