The Medved 5k to Cure ALS has been postponed.

New Date: TBD

We have consulted with Monroe County and The City of Rochester and have decided to postpone The Medved 5k to Cure ALS. We have been closely following local, state, and federal guidelines surrounding this pandemic, and the uncertainty of COVID-19 is just too great to establish a new date at this time. We will contact all registered participants when we have better information.

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date once it is set, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.
