Friends of Melana Virtual 5k/1 Mile Run

April 3rd, 2020

2020 Friends of Melana Special Edition VIRTUAL 5k/1 MILE

Summerfest has been rescheduled to later this summer. We are going to convert to a VIRTUAL EVENT due to the current COVID-19 epidemic. We are looking forward to celebrating our 10th Anniversary in person with all of you next year.

For now, we truly hope you will all embrace this creative way to continue to support the cause we so passionately care about by participating this year virtually! It’s very simple, just register anytime between now and June 20, 2020. Then, any day or time between June 13th and June 20th complete your distance. If you choose, record your time and route on your GPS watch. There will still be a results page, so please feel free to submit your time (5k only) to our timing company at It’s all on the honor system. We will then be mailing your shirts and you can expect to receive them via USPS no later than July 10, 2020. Again, we appreciate your understanding as we all adjust. Please remember that every child and their family who received the terrible diagnosis of DIPG are still battling that monster amid everything else that is currently happening. We cannot thank you enough for your willingness to press on and support the cause in this new creative way!
