Dear runners, walkers, and supporters:

This year, to keep everyone safe, our Race for Research will occur VIRTUALLY — from a location of your choice, the weekend of September 26 – 27!  We invite you to walk 2 miles or run a 5K in the comfort of your neighborhood, a familiar bike path, or even your treadmill — the options are endless!

For the first time ever, we’re able to make participation in this race truly international! Please join us “at home,” with the help of our LEAD SPONSOR, NORTH SHORE BANK, to make this our biggest, best, global event yet!!

One new way to participate is by sharing photos of you on your course with your PRINTABLE BIB to our Facebook page – HERE with  #PRFraceforresearch.  Show us where you are with a city sign or t-shirt, which pet you’re running with, your social distancing skills with fellow walkers/runners, etc.

The race course is changing, but our mission to help these children and young adults is not, so we’re counting on you more than ever to help us cure Progeria!​
