The OAFP Foundation (Foundation) is hosting its inaugural Family Medicine 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, November 7, and we want YOU on our team! Run as an individual; create a team with your practice, residency program, or family medicine interest group; or join the Foundation cheer team to support the race without having to leave your home. Registration is open now through Sunday, November 8.
This year’s virtual race will allow participants to run or walk at any time during Saturday, November 7, or Sunday, November 8, on a route of their choice. Join us at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, November 7, for a kick-off livestream video on the Foundation Facebook page and an official race start at 10 a.m. Race participants will receive a t-shirt and medal after their race, a printable bib, access to a virtual swag bag from sponsors, and can upload their self-recorded results to the leader board. Race entry is $35 per person. Proceeds will support Foundation programming for medical students and residents.
Follow along on the Foundation Facebook page for training tips, selfie challenges, and reminders for the race! Make sure to tag the Foundation in your race photos and use #FamilyMedicine5K with your posts on social media.
