Rare Disease Day Virtual Race
01 February 2020 - 29 February 2020
, United States, Canada, United Kingdom
Hosted by Running On Air
Join us for the 5th annual Rare Disease Day virtual race sponsored by Running On Air and benefiting the National Organization for Rare Diseases (NORD) and the PCD Foundation. Participants receive a medal of a zebra encircled by the Rare Disease Day overlapping hands.
Our previous 4 events combined have raised over $11,000.
Why a zebra? “When you hear the sound of hooves, think horses, not zebras.” In medicine the term “zebra” is used in reference to a rare disease or condition. Doctors are taught to assume that the simplest explanation is usually correct. Unfortunately that means those with rare diseases are often misdiagnosed or go for years without a diagnosis.
Every registration will also get a bib number specifically designed for this event. We also have some extras provided by Running for Rare. These will be shipped to US medal registratants on a first come basis.
Because of issues with shipping international medals last year we are limiting registration this year to the US, Canada and United Kingdom.
Share your event pictures and event details on https://www.facebook.com/RunningOnAirO2/ and use #RareDiseaseDay. We'll share to inspire others to make a difference and have fun in the process.
You can choose how far you want to walk or run to complete this event, whether it’s a 5K, 10K or a half marathon.
This event is organized by Running On Air, which is not affiliated with NORD or the PCD Foundation. A portion of the profits from this event will go to NORD and the PCD Foundation. All fundraising money goes directly to the charity selected.
