Fundraising is an important aspect of our Run for Resilience Ostomy 5K. Funds raised help UOAA continue to provide resources, educational materials, advocacy and support to the ostomy and continent diversion community.

We invite you to set up your own Personal or Team Fundraiser when registering to participate in the event, or through our DONATION link. You can create a unique Fundraiser Name and URL address, personalize your fundraising message, and direct your friends and family to your page to join your team or sponsor you in your fundraising goal.


Your commitment to fund raise and support the ostomy and continent diversion community is no small endeavor, and we appreciate your dedication and hard work.

> “Empower” Fundraisers who raise $200 or more will receive a distinctive Run For Resilience Cell Phone PopSocket

> “Champion” Fundraisers who raise $400 or more will receive a Blue Rolling Insulated Cooler Bag with “Ostomies Are Life-Savers” Life Ring Logo


Tech T-shirts will be included with registration if registered before the deadline. Race shirts will be either unisex or female v-neck cut. You are guaranteed a race shirt if you register by September 17th. You may purchase additional race shirts for $10 each.


Race registration bags will have typical race/sponsor promotional items, ostomy education materials, and most importantly an ostomy pouch. We encourage non-ostomate participants to put on the pouch for the race to improve awareness and empathy for the challenges faced by people living with ostomies.
