Event description


May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month! Register to run, walk, or skip your way through a 5K anywhere, anytime during May to support research through NatCapLyme, get a sweet medal, and put the squeeze on Lyme!

Did you know Lyme is the fastest spreading vector-borne disease in the US? Also called "the great imitator," Lyme can mimic multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Lou Gehrig's (ALS), rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome, just to name a few. There are cases of Lyme in every state and there's a good chance someone you know has it. Did you know that current testing is considered unreliable? Many patients have to fight for years to receive treatment. (For more information, check out Lyme Disease Info.)

What can you do to help? Register for the Electric Lymeade Virtual 5K!

Here's how it works:

  1. Register! (Use the link above.)
  2. Tell your friends and family! (Discount for groups of 4 or more.)
  3. Complete your 5K your way anytime at all during May. You can run, walk, skateboard, kayak, zipline, ride a horse... The more creative, the better!
  4. Post your photos to our Facebook page or use the hashtag #electriclymeade2017 on your Instagram or Twitter. Bonus points for sporting your lime green!
  5. Submit your results through our website.
  6. Finisher's medal(s) will begin shipping in the middle of May as you submit your results!
  7. Feel good knowing you did something awesome for yourself and others!

Don't have the time or energy to lace up your running shoes? You can always break your race up into multiple days. If a donation is more your speed, we love those too! Use the registration link to donate any amount. Every little bit helps and all proceeds go directly to NatCapLyme.
