While navigating the uncharted waters of the COVID-19 crisis, the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) has been working tirelessly to advocate for our scholars, residents, and alumni.
We are pleased to announce the LECOM Finish Line for the Front Line 2020 Virtual 5K as a healthful event that enables you to walk, run, bike, elliptical, or row 3.1 miles wherever is most convenient for you.REGISTER
As we begin to see an easing of restrictions on outdoor activities, LECOM Medical Fitness and Wellness Center encourages an active lifestyle. 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 all aware and deeply concerned about the heightened risk facing our medical professionals as they battle the COVID-19 Virus. They are stalwarts on the front line, providing care to those in need of medical attention and risking their own lives to save others. Our profession is a noble one, and mindful of those currently in the battle, our efforts now will 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.
LECOM is an institution that trains Osteopathic Physicians, Pharmacists and Dentists. Since its inception, LECOM has proven itself as an 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.
You can participate in this Virtual 5K event in four easy steps:
You must register by July 31, 2020. T-shirts and medals will be mailed to all participants in August 2020.
Remember to keep your distance from others if you are planning to complete the 5K outside.
