You don’t have to be at the physical event location to participate in the Medical Heroes Appreciation 5K — anyone can be a Virtual Runner or Walker! By joining us as a Virtual Participant, you can run or walk from any location you choose. Run, jog, walk around your neighborhood, on a trail, treadmill, or at the gym.

To participate as a Virtual Participant, simply choose the ‘Virtual Runner/Walker’ option when you register for the Medical Heroes Appreciation 5K, and we’ll send you a t-shirt. That way, you can showcase your appreciation for Medical Heroes everywhere! Take a picture of yourself in the Med Hero 5K shirt and post to social media and use the hashtag #MedHero5K. If you email it to we can add it to our 5K gallery.

Your contribution will fund educational programs and outreach initiatives for patients and their families. To learn more about how your donation will be used, visit our Education Center and Programs pages.
