5K Run, Walk or Roll

Join SP-Foundation in fundraising for #HSPandPLS Medical Research.

May 1st - October 31, 2024

5K Run, Walk or Roll with the SP-Foundation has grown each year as we celebrate 2024 as our 6th Annual Event. In 2023, we raised $75,000. With your help in 2024, we can raise $80,000. Let's do it!

Compete on your own event, recruit family and friends to participate, or plan an in-person event for others in your area. Can’t Run, Walk, or Roll? How about calculating the time you spend stretching, exercising, or going to physical therapy? Please make sure you check with your healthcare professional before doing anything you are not used to.

You can participate any time now through the end of Oct, but we challenge you to complete your fundraising by Aug 24th so we can celebrate as a group during SPF Awareness Week. Bibs will be mailed as soon as you register. T-shirts will be mailed as soon as you raise/contribute at least $100.

Please set up your personal fundraising page: CLICK HERE  to see more details and start raising funds. Grab a photo to upload, create a personal message to ask for donations, and set a goal. Not sure how much you can raise? Start with a goal of $500. You might be surprised. You can always increase your goal. Be creative and have fun! There were some participants from last year that used mobility devices to participate. At least one swam her way to raising funds for medical research.

If you would like to host a 5K event, please email: You will be emailed a How to Plan a 5K guide. It will provide a step-by-step process to get ready for your event. Please do not get overwhelmed. If this is your first time planning an event like this, start small. Invite family and friends this year. Invite others next year.
