Friday, October 13
6:30 am
Sloan Lake Park

Who said exercise can’t be fun? Well it sure can be—especially if you’re supporting the future of physiatric research! Join your colleagues as we raise money for the Foundation for PM&R during this early-morning fun run (shuttle buses will be provided to Sloan Lake Park). The money we raise helps provide your physiatry peers with the resources they need to advance the specialty and patient care.

Participants who are preregistered can pick up their race packets at the Foundation for PM&R booth (registration is also available onsite, but late fees apply). Additional donations and sponsorship of participants is encouraged!
