See Rare Run Virtual 5K Run/Walk
22 February 2019 - 28 February 2019
Hosted by See Rare Run
Welcome to the SECOND SEE RARE RUN VIRTUAL 5K! We had an incredible "turnout" in October 2018, and this year we are hosting the race to coincide with worldwide Rare Disease Day.
There are nearly 7,000 diseases considered "rare," and approximately 1 in 10 Americans are living with one of these diseases or disorders. Help raise awareness for these patients and their families by participating in our virtual 5K run/walk. Your support will benefit the National Organization for Rare Disorders/Undiagnosed Diseases Network Patient Assistance Program. This program provides financial assistance to rare disease patients and their families who have exhausted all alternatives in their journey to receiving a diagnosis. 100% of the proceeds from the race will benefit this program.
WHAT: This is a virtual 5K run OR walk. You can participate on your own terms and in your favorite run/walk location in the allotted time frame for the race. Every participant will receive a race medal, and it will be shipped to the address provided on the registration form. You must register by Monday, February 18 to be guaranteed a race medal. You are NOT required to submit results to your race, but the option will be available after the race period is over.
WHEN: ANYTIME between Friday, February 22, 2019 through Thursday, February 28, 2019.
COST: $10 plus processing fees. Please note that all registrations are final. There are no refunds.
