The Gainesville 5K Fun Run and Kid’s Races will be held on Saturday March 5, 2022 at 10am. The location of the event has yet to be determined. The races will be informal and untimed. There will be a picnic and social time with Dr. Miller after the races are concluded.
Dr. Jennifer Miller and Dr. Tammy Buck, PT, DPT, PCS and assistant professor of physical therapy at Brenau University will be the team captains for this event.
Our team is open to individuals with PWS as well as typical runners and walkers.
All runners will be provided a free “couch to 5K” training program. The training program has been designed by Dr. Buck specifically for PWS persons. Participation in the training program is not mandatory but is recommended.
Dr. Buck will also provide virtual coaching throughout the training process and will be available for individual consultation if necessary.
The fundraising goal for each runner/team is $1,000. Click here to create your Fundraising Page.
Each registered member of the fundraising team will receive a free team shirt as a thank you for their effort.
A special PWS clinic will be held at the University of Florida on Friday March 4th. This clinic will be available for all new or existing pediatric PWS individuals who are either running on our team OR who have a loved one who is running on our team. The clinic will have a daily maximum number of 8 participants and slots will be filled on a first register, first request basis. There will be a space available on the registration form to indicate your desire to be included.
