Location: Your Choice
Dates: June 1 – August 31
Description: It’s been more than a year, and we are still finding novel ways to maneuver around the many challenges of the COVID-19 crisis.
Unabashedly undaunted, the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) has been working tirelessly to advocate for our scholars, residents, and alumni. On the heels of the great success last year, we are pleased to announce the Second Annual LECOM Finish Line for the Front Line 2021 Virtual 5K! We are asking that you step forward to engage once again in the healthful event that enables you to walk, run, bike, elliptical, or row 3.1 miles wherever is most convenient for you.
The LECOM Medical Fitness and Wellness Center encourages an active lifestyle, especially when our current situation is causing physical activities to remain somewhat limited. This is a virtual 5K, which means that you will not be attending an actual event location, so we will not be utilizing any timing devices or bibs. We are proud to train and educate the stalwarts on the front line who provide care to those in need of medical attention and who risk their own lives to save others. Our profession is a noble one, and mindful of those currently in the battle, our efforts continue to benefit those who will serve in years to come.
All proceeds from the Virtual 5K event will benefit the LECOM Student Scholarship Fund, helping to defray the educational costs of our future health care providers from LECOM.
Since its inception, LECOM has proven itself a superlative educational institution that encourages and supports its scholars through and beyond their years of study. Our Annual LECOM Student Scholarship Galas are the chief generator of resources that are used to assist students in defraying and offsetting the cost of their medical education. Each year, we raise millions of dollars in scholarship aid for our deserving students. In a time during which there is an increased need for primary care physicians and in a time of public health crisis, the need for successfully graduated medical practitioners is felt now more intensely than ever before.
