While COVID-19 has transformed our world, one thing will never change: we’re coming together on October 11 to support patients and families through this crisis and celebrate community.
We need you more than ever! Whatever format changes may come, the funds you raise will provide direct help for patients who have nowhere else to turn during this crisis. Our Run/Walks now have two options, so that everyone can to participate safely:
Virtual: Take action to fundraise: at home, in your neighborhood, or around the community, the only limit is your imagination! Then join us on October 11 for an inspiring day of celebration, support, and honoring patients, survivors, and caregivers.
In-Person: As of today, in-person Run/Walks are still planned with additional measures to ensure participant’s safety in October. If stay-at-home orders require the New York Run/Walk to become fully virtual, all run/walker participants will be automatically converted to a virtual participant and their registration fees will be displayed as a donation on their personal pages.This year's event features a 5K run/walk, 1 mile walk, Kids' Superhero Dash for Dad, and Snooze for Dudes (Virtual Race). The 5K will be chip-timed, and top finishers medals will be awarded. 5K and 1 Mile participants will receive a tech shirt, and Kid's Dash participants will get a fun cape. All participants are eligible to earn fundraising rewards, and are invited to enjoy the race day celebration featuring snacks and family-friendly activities.
