The 3nd Annual Harrison Township, MI Run For Resilience Ostomy 5k will be held on Saturday, October 3, 2020 as a Virtual Event.
Run, walk, or roll safely at your own favorite place and celebrate Ostomy Awareness Day (OAD) on October 3rd
What does that mean for you, your family and friends? With your registration for your local Virtual Run/Walk, you will receive a unique 10th Anniversary Ostomy Awareness Day Race T-Shirt. We encourage you to wear it at your favorite place to run, walk or roll in your community while raising awareness. Or, if you feel more comfortable staying at home, hop on your treadmill or take a stroll through your neighborhood.
Due to the ongoing restrictions in the state of Michigan, your T-Shirt will be shipped to you at this time. Register by September 11th at the Early Bird Rate of $22.50, a $5.00 savings, and your T-Shirt is guaranteed to arrive by October 3rd. Registrations received after September 11th may not receive a T-Shirt prior to October 3rd.
As this is a critical fundraising event for our nonprofit organization, we encourage you to start a Personal or Team Fundraiser when you register, and ask your family and friends to join you to help support UOAA and our mission.
ORDER YOUR T-SHIRT BY SEPTEMBER 11th!
To ensure you receive the unique Ostomy Awareness Day Race T-Shirt size you ordered before October 3rd, please register by Friday, September 11th. We will do our best to provide you with the T-Shirt size you ordered or a similar size, however, the size and delivery prior to October 3rd is not guaranteed after September 11th.
CELEBRATE THE DAY!
♦ Run, walk or roll a 5k (3.1 miles) route or distance of your choice where you feel safe and can abide to the 6-feet social distancing guidelines. Ask your family and friends to join you, and create your own ‘safe’ mini-event. You can even run/walk on a treadmill!
