The 2020 Med Hero Appreci-a-thon is a one-of-a-kind virtual fitness challenge created to spread awareness about clinical research and honor study volunteers or "Medical Heroes". This is one of many grassroots initiatives created by the Boston-based, globally focused nonprofit organization, CISCRP.
As a nod to the Summer Olympics, the virtual course is based in beautiful Sapporo, Japan. Participants can log ANY kind of intentional exercise they complete from 4/15 - 5/15 on the Racery platform (website or app - linked below). Each measurement of activity is converted into miles and will pinpoint racers on a map of Sapporo in real time with Google Street views of your location!
All entry fees and donations support CISCRP's global education initiatives that empower patients and the public to make informed decisions about clinical research participation.
Registrants can order VIP t-shirts, and all participants will receive digital bling, motivational reminders to log activity, and will have an incomparable experience to physically challenge others from around the world!
