Forget Me Not 5k for Alzheimer's benefitting The Pat Summitt Foundation

Sun October 4 - Sun October 11
Forget Me Not 5K is now a Virtual Event

 Friends of Alzheimer’s,

NEW Virtual DATE- SUNDAY OCTOBER 4-11, 2020 

While Forget Me Not 5K for Alzheimer’s mission is to provide exceptional, life-changing race experiences for athletes of all levels, from their first step to the finish line, we can only accomplish this by providing the safest possible environment, and safeguarding the citizens of our host community. Therefore, we have decided to go virtual.  Registered athletes for events that are postponed due to COVID-19 may switch to virtual event and post times to vie for prizes. Or, per your request, we will send your Official 10th Annual T-shirt as a Ghost Runner, or transfer your registration funds to a direct donation to The Pat Summitt Foundation.

Thank you for your continued support, and we wish you the best in health and wellness.

The 10th Annual Forget Me Not 5K for Alzheimer's

Here Are Your Options:

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own. 

You want us to keep your registration fees to benefit The Pat Summitt Foundation for research in Alzheimer's Disease. We are a completely volunteer managed race and 100% of proceeds go to our benefactor. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.
