Brain Tumor Community Unites with BT5K Your Way

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine, building community and sharing experiences has never been more important than today. We’re all missing our Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5K Run & Walk community, so hosting virtual race events brings us all together, while amplifying our voices to support brain tumor research and patient programs.

The ABTA has made it more convenient and fun to connect with each other through the 5K run and walk events. This fall, beginning with our nationwide BT5K Your Way in September, participants can personalize their 5K experience as a team or solo, using a mobile app. The BT5K Your Way event app offers participants the ability to track their racing progress; receive real-time, real-location progress alerts; and gain momentum with encouraging messages from the ABTA, your team or another participant.

Register Today; Plan Your Participation Later

There’s no time like today to sign up for BT5K Your Way. You can form a team — or go solo — and fundraise now. But whether you plan to walk, run, bike, push a stroller or rollerblade for 5 kilometers with your family and friends who live five miles or five states away, the skies are the limits. And you’ll start and complete the 5K route and track your own distance personally or with the walk app between September 5 through September 13.

Remember to join us on September 13 for a virtual celebration that includes a ceremony, guest speakers and giveaways. All registered adults will be mailed a BT5K dri-fit shirt, race bib and finishers certificate. Registered children, ages 2-16, will also get a finisher’s medal.

Additional local BT5K Your Way in-person and virtual events are also planned for October and November. Visit BT5K Your Way to learn more or email events@abta.org.
