The Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP) and the Association for Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP), two independent, nonprofit organizations based Boston, Mass. and Alexandria, Va., respectively, have announced the upcoming Medical Heroes Appreciation 5K Run & Walk in Salt Lake City, Utah, to celebrate those who volunteer to participate in clinical research and raise awareness about the importance of clinical research in advancing public health.
CISCRP will hold the 5K in conjunction with the ACRP 2015 Global Conference & Exhibition, Saturday, April 25, 2015, near the Salt Palace Convention Center from 6:30-8:15 a.m. Participants are encouraged to register early as space is limited. For each 5K registrant, the Greater Gift Initiative will donate a vaccine to a child in need.
Proceeds from the 5K will support education and outreach programs to patients and families interested in learning more about the clinical research process.
Check-in the day of the event begins at 6 a.m. For more information, to volunteer, register or become a sponsor, visit ciscrp.org/medhero5k-SLC, e-mail email@example.com or call 1-877-MED-HERO.
