Grab your running shoes and some friends and join us in person at Penn Park or from anywhere in the world for a 5k Run or a Funky Miler Walk. When you do, you’ll be making a real, lasting impact on the lives of local area hospital patients.

Since 2014, the annual WXPN 5k Run has been the primary event to raise much needed funds for WXPN Musicians On Call which brings musicians to the bedsides of patients in the Delaware Valley. With COVID-19 restrictions preventing or limiting in-hospital patient visits, bringing live stream and recorded music to the bedsides of patients and their caregivers is more important than ever. 

Our sole fundraising event will be a hybrid this year. Simply choose whether you’ll run a 5k or walk a mile and where you’ll do it, either on our official course or chart your own. 

Registration includes:

  • Admission to the Celebration and Dance Party 
  • Run/Walk Playlist
  • Pre-race yoga warmup
  • All the feels you get from knowing that your support helps bring joy to hundreds of hospitalized patients.

BONUS! Register no later than September 1, 2021 and receive a commemorative long-sleeved race shirt!
