The Zebra 5K Run/Walk is an in-person or virtual 5K run OR walk! Tuesday, February 26, 2019.
Why a Zebra? The Zebra is the official symbol of rare diseases in the United States… currently over 7,000 unique diseases!
WHO WE HELP: The Zebra 5k Run/Walk benefits the greater rare disease community. There are nearly 7,000 diseases considered “rare,” and approximately 1 in 10 Americans are living with one of these rare diseases or disorders. Help raise awareness for these patients and their families by participating in our in-person and/or virtual 5K run/walk. Your support will benefit Avery’s Hope. Avery’s Hope will donate proceeds to the HOPE Family Fund at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Department of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, and to Family Assistance at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. These institutions and our program provide financial assistance to rare disease patients and their families who have exhausted all financial alternatives on their journey to receiving their child’s rare diagnosis. 100% of the proceeds from the event will benefit these patient assistance programs.
WHO ARE WE? The New Hope Run Club is a running and movement group located in New Hope, PA. We’re sponsoring this run and hosting the in-person portion of the run as part of our normal weekly run (find us on Facebook or at www.newhoperunclub.com). We’ve partnered with Avery’s Hope to do our part in supporting the rare disease community and raise money and awareness for this great cause.
