TSF Virtual Fun Run & Walk

Join us at the 2022 Virtual Fun Run & Walk, held in conjunction with the 2022 STS Annual Meeting in Miami Beach, Florida!

Participants can run or walk this virtual 5K anytime during the week of January 21- February 1, 2022. You can complete the challenge solo or as part of a team. Teams can be patients, hospital employees, a group of friends, a family, exhibitors, or corporate staff. All are welcome! The race is sponsored by our friends at Medtronic. All proceeds will benefit TSF cardiothoracic surgery research programs. Share your running photos with the cardiothoracic surgery community and use the hashtags: #STS2022 and #TSF5K.

What is a virtual run?

Virtual races give runners and walkers the flexibility to complete the race at any time, at any pace, and in any location. Complete the race inside on your treadmill, or outside in your neighborhood!

Track your time and compete with others or complete the race on your own time. You can even just register to receive a race t-shirt. The choice is yours! We encourage all levels of participation.

In the time of social distancing, the virtual TSF Fun Run & Walk is a great way to stay active, engage with the cardiothoracic surgery community, and participate in some healthy competition while supporting TSF research programs.
