At Callen-Lorde, the health and welfare of our patients, supporters, and staff is our top priority. Due to the unpredictability of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and consistent with the guidance we have received from New York City and state government officials, including restrictions on large public gatherings, the 2020 Rainbow Run is going virtual!
The virtual version of this event will take place between May 9th and May 16th. Prior to your run/walk you will receive your personal bib number in the mail. You can choose any day during that week to complete your run/walk in the convenience of your own neighborhood. We urge you to follow social distancing guidelines and avoid large crowds while you complete your 5K or 10K. At the completion of your run/walk, you can easily upload your finishing time and photos to our race results platform. Directions on uploading your results will be sent prior to May 9th. To help you track the timing of your run/walk, there are many free apps that you can download to your smartphone: Runstastic, RunKeeper, MapMyRun, etc. All participants will receive a Rainbow Run finisher medal when we are able to accommodate distribution.
We’re staying busy here at Callen-Lorde by continuing our regular services remotely and addressing COVID-19 concerns for our 18,000 patients. If you haven’t yet, and you’re looking for a way to support our response to this crisis or if you’re looking to stay active, consider signing up for this year’s run/walk, sharing it with your networks, and starting or continuing your fundraising efforts.Registration is $35 for the 5K and $40 for the 10K.
