"Living with a family of doctors, I've seen first-hand the impact COVID-19 has had on healthcare workers. So many of my friends and colleagues are at home like I am and looking for a way to give back but are unsure how. I knew this virtual run would be the perfect way to get people outdoors and raise money for an important cause: supporting those on the frontlines who help our community every single day."
