Medical Heroes Appreci-a-thon

The 2022 Medical Heroes

Appreci-a-thon 

January 3rd – 31st

Kick off the New Year in Hawaii with CISCRP as we show our appreciation for Medical Heroes! Medical Heroes are clinical trial study volunteers, healthcare professionals, researchers, and those on the front lines who are treating and caring for the public.

The 2022 Medical Heroes Appreci-a-thon is a team building and outreach campaign in the style of a virtual activity challenge.

 

 

Free entry! Donations are welcomed.

Join racers from around the world to log any physical activity completed throughout the month of January – it doesn’t have to be just running or jogging! Each measurement of activity is converted into miles and will pin-point teams on the virtual course in beautiful Hawaii.

Read more about this event in a featured article on USA Wire here.

How to race:

 
  • Start logging your activity on January 3rd on our Racery platform, available online and in the app-store.
  • You can log ANY kind of intentional activity. A few fun exercises to consider: Jumping rope, yoga, walking the dog, raking leaves, and more.
  • Teams are limited to 10 people.

Thank You to Our Sponsors:
