JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME - HELP END PCOS!

The PCOS Challenge 5K Virtual Run/Walk is for those individuals who would like to show their support for women and girls with polycystic ovary syndrome, but are unable to attend a live PCOS Challenge 5K event. As a Virtual Walker, you can participate from wherever you are. There are a number of easy ways that you can do this including:

  • Walking around your neighborhood
  • Going to the gym and using the elliptical or treadmill
  • Going to a local park or track
  • Organizing a team of friends, family members, co-workers or women with PCOS to walk with you and represent your city or state.

If you are unable to walk 5K or 3.1 miles, walk as far as you can, even if it's only a few blocks or one lap around the park or track. The important thing is to take the first step. Together we can change the future for women and girls with PCOS.

WHAT DO I RECEIVE AS A VIRTUAL WALKER?
Your registration fee gives you access to your online Participant Center and fundraising tools. If you raise $100 or more, PCOS Challenge will mail you a race pack and an Official PCOS Challenge 5K T-Shirt. Please note, your registration fee does NOT count toward your fundraising total. By registering as a Virtual Walker, you also have the opportunity to qualify for our great fundraising incentives!

ABOUT POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects up to 15% of women in the U.S. and hundreds of millions globally. It is one of the most critical, under-diagnosed, underfunded and neglected areas of health, which can lead to lifelong complications, infertility, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.

ABOUT THE PCOS CHALLENGE 5K RUN/WALK

By supporting the PCOS Challenge 5K Run Walk, you will become a champion for one of the most important issues affecting women’s health. Your support will make a huge difference in the lives of tens-of-thousands of women as proceeds from the PCOS Challenge 5K Run/Walk event will go toward PCOS Challenge education and support programs, health screenings, grants, and research as well as efforts to increase awareness and public support for those with polycystic ovary syndrome.

Your support will help improve health outcomes, health management and quality of care for women and girls with PCOS.
