Location: Facebook Live & YouTube

What Is A Virtual 5K?

This interactive event brings the same unique elements of an in-person 5K online to celebrate and remember our loved ones affected by this disease. Featured on Facebook Live and YouTube, we will host an at-home 5K, share stories from survivors and team captains, recognize the Keeping the Faith and Stevie Patrick Legacy of Love recipients and remember those we’ve lost during our Celebration of Life. Interested in sharing your story for the virtual 5K? Email jenna@headforthecure.org.

Things to Know:

  • Will I Still Get My Shirt and Medal? YES! We will be mailing all shirts and medals to each participant after the race. Please be sure that the address entered when registering is the address you would like your items shipped to. Please note that shipping may be delayed due to shelter-in-place orders. 
  • How Can You Help? Encourage registrations and donations! Our grants for clinical research and patient programs at Lenox Hill Neurosurgery come from our race proceeds. We can't make an impact in this fight against brain cancer without YOU!

HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THE VIRTUAL 5K
