Join us for the 2017 Batten Awareness Weekend Virtual 5K!
Held during Batten Awareness Weekend, June 3-4, 2017, BDSRA is celebrating 30 years with this year's Run for Research.
What is a Virtual 5K?
Runners and walkers will gather in their hometown, there is no central race location. This means no traveling and no early start times! You get to choose where, with whom, and even how you want to complete the 5K.
This 5K can be done at any time during Batten Awareness Weekend. You can do it in increments throughout the course of the weekend, just keep track of your distance until you hit 5K.
How can you Participate? Raising Funds and Awareness!

This event is open to individuals of all ages and abilities. Once you register, either as an individual or as part of a team, you are ready to plan your route. Share your route and pictures using the hashtags #battenrun2017 and as always, #battenawareness.
When you have completed the 5K, log into your account and enter your time. All times must be entered by midnight on Monday, June 5th. The top finishers in individual and team categories, and the top fundraisers will be acknowledged at the annual BDSRA family conference in July of this year, as well as in the newsletter and on our website.You can log into your account at bdsra.account.webconnex.com/login.
This is not a sanctioned event and there is no penalty if you are unable to complete any or all of the 5K. What we ask is that during Batten Awareness Weekend, you post pictures on your 5K route and pictures of you and your team in their t-shirts! While, this is completely optional — it greatly helps support our goal to bring awareness to Batten disease, so post away! And please use the hashtags #battenrun2017 and #battenawareness in all of your posts so people all over the country can be connected to your team.
