CalvertHealth Virtual Breast Cancer 5K Run/Walk

Organized by CalvertHealth $25 instant refund on this event with gift card.

About this event

Due to the recent rise in COVID infections and hospitalizations in Calvert County, the CalvertHealth Foundation made the very difficult decision to err on the side of caution and move our 2021 Breast Cancer 5K to a virtual-only event. As much as we have looked forward to the camaraderie and hopefulness of this annual community gathering, we cannot be good stewards of health and also convene hundreds upon hundreds of people - even outdoors - at this time.

Event details and schedule

Although we are switching formats to ensure the health and safety of our community, participants will still have the opportunity to don their 5K shirts, complete a course and proudly wear that completion medal! Moving forward, we are excited to partner with Jefferson Patterson Park to provide a 5K course that participants can enjoy the entire month of October. The course will include tribute signs recognizing the family and friends we are celebrating and remembering, a selfie station (because did it really happen if you don’t take a selfie?) and an opportunity for all race participants to sign a commemorative board recognizing completion of the course. While we all may not be able to gather in person at one time, this event is a great way to still connect with other community and family members that are completing their 5Ks at different times. We will also be offering prizes and giveaways for participants who share their photos and experiences with us on social media using the hashtag #CalvertHealth5K. The Annual 5K is our largest source of fundraising support for the Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care and we look forward to your continued support for this important cause. Plan to tune in for an event kick-off via Facebook Live on Saturday, October 2 at 9 a.m. The course will be available the whole month of October to allow for participants to walk/run at their preferred time, additionally, we will celebrating all month on our social media pages while sharing participant photos/videos, cheer team videos, warm-up videos and more. Packet Pick-up will be available at the Foundation Office, 106 Hospital Road, Prince Frederick, MD 20678 on Tuesday, September 28 from 10 a.m.–4 p.m.; Wednesday, September 39 from 10 a.m.–4 p.m.; and Thursday, September 30 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Additional packet pickup dates will be available every Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through October 31.
