Vancouver, WA (Virtual)

The 6th Annual Vancouver, Washington (formerly Portland, OR) Run For Resilience Ostomy 5k will be held on Saturday, October 3, 2020 as a Virtual Event.

Register or Donate Now

UPDATE! Due to the continued concerns regarding COVID-19, and for the safety and security of our Run participants, all T-Shirts and other promotional material will be shipped to registrants rather than arranging for a packet pick-up. If you have any questions, please email Christine.ryan@ostomy.org. 

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.

T-SHIRT REGISTRATION ENDS ON SEPT. 21st!  Due to the ongoing concerns in Idaho, your T-Shirt will be shipped to you at this time. To ensure you will receive a T-Shirt by October 3rd, please register no later than 11:59 p.m. EST on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21st. Participants who register after September 21st will not receive a T-Shirt as with the current weather-related conditions in parts of the country, UOAA wants to ensure all participants receive their package prior to October 3rd.  (Please note the T-Shirt size you ordered is no longer guaranteed.)

REGISTRATIONS RECEIVED AFTER SEPT. 21st – Follow the link to download and print your Race Bib to wear on October 3rd. The registration fee reflect this change. 

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.

You’ll also get a race bib, a free sports pack bag and sponsor materials such as ostomy awareness stickers.
