Over $9000 raised!!! Thank you to everyone who joined us to make this years 5K event such a success. Despite being spread around the world, our Barth community can feel the love. Your support gives us HOPE for a better future for those affected by this devastating disease.

JUNE 15, 2021

Our virtual 5K event can be run or walked from any location you choose at any time you choose during the month of May. There is no official start time, nor do you have to drive to a specific location. You do not need to deal with traffic, parking or poor weather. Whenever your schedule permits it, put on your walking shoes and off you go, whether on a track, trail, road, or treadmill, it all counts.

You can run on your own or with friends and family, and it is open to anyone. At last year’s event, we had participants from around the globe join us ranging in age from 3 years old to 88.

Registration is $50.00, and includes a unique medal created from Western Red Cedar. Registration runs from February 28th – May 31st. Once you have registered, your medal will be mailed to you within 2-4 days.

All proceeds from this event will help people with Barth syndrome.

To register: 2nd Annual Virtual 5K – CanadaHelps
