October 1-9, 2022
The OAFP Foundation (Foundation) is hosting its third annual Family Medicine 5K Run/Walk and we want YOU on our team! This year’s virtual race time is being extended, allowing you to run or walk your 3.1 miles anytime Saturday-Sunday, October 1-9, on the route of your choice. Run as an individual; create a team with your colleagues, friends, or family; or join the Foundation cheer team to support the race without having to leave your home!
Race participants will receive a commemorative race shirt, finisher medal, and a virtual sponsor packet. Racers can also upload their self-recorded results to the leader board. Registrations submitted by Thursday, September 1, will receive their race packet by mail prior to race weekend. Registrations submitted Friday, September 2, and after will receive their race packet by mail after the race.
All race proceeds will support Foundation programming for medical students and family medicine residents in Ohio. The Foundation is the only 501(c) (3) tax-exempt charitable organization in Ohio that exists to promote family medicine as a career choice to medical students and family medicine residents – building a strong family medicine workforce for Ohio. Family physicians provide comprehensive, continuing care to all members of the family, and high quality, cost effective care to patients of all ages and genders. A strong primary care based health system leads to better health and better care at a lower cost.
Foundation programs have benefited thousands of Ohio medical students and residents through educational grants, preceptorship stipends, and scholarships. This year, the Foundation continues its work to build a strong family medicine workforce to carry the torch forward with its largest preceptorship cohort yet and a return to in-person National Conference events.
