Kick in to stop Sarcoidosis

Nashville, TN

k-i-s-sPatients and their loved ones know better than anyone that we need to speed up research and raise more awareness for this terrible disease. There’s never been a more fun way to raise awareness while doing the hard work of raising funds for sarcoidosis research and patient support programs. Kick In to Stop Sarcoidosis with us at the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research’s 4th Annual 5K Run/Walk in Nashville, Tennessee! 

The race will kick off at 10:00 am CST in Nashville’s beautiful Shelby Bottom Park. Together with family, friends, and other supporters, you’ll admire the scenery and costumes at this superhero themed run/walk. Whether you choose to enjoy a morning run or make new friends as you walk with fellow patients and loved ones along the route, you’ll cross the finish line to cheering supporters. The fun will just be getting started at our post-race party! After we show our appreciation for top fundraisers, top race finishers, and best costumes, we’ll celebrate the progress we’re making towards a cure with the rest of the sarcoidosis community. Don’t miss your chance to join us!

But the 5K represents more than a walk, it is a movement with opportunities to join us no matter where you live! Become a walk leader and bring an event to your hometownfind a walk near you, or nab a tshirt and participate in your own way when you register as a virtual walker.
