RUN (OR WALK) A 5K AND SUPPORT TRAUMA EDUCATION
Straight Outta Quarantine 5K Run presented by the Arizona Trauma Association‘s Tackle Trauma (TM) is the premier race and fundraiser experience for individuals looking to support trauma care. This year‘s race will have a dual focus, as COVID-19 has changed the landscape for all first responders and hospital trauma personnel. In years past, our focus has been solely on trauma — Traumatic injuries are the leading cause of death for all children and adults up to age 46. But this year, the public health need is also to “Tackle COVID-19” through increased vaccination. The prevalence of trauma in our state did not decrease during Quarantine, remaining at 6.27 per 1000 Arizonans. And the trauma community continued to do its important work every day Now, most healthcare workers are vaccinated, but it is important for every eligible person to get a vaccine for us to move beyond Quarantine and into the reopening phase of this pandemic.
You can run at any time on the weekend of April 24th and 25th before 5 pm on Sunday. Run anywhere you want, even on a treadmill. Or recruit friends to run with you outside. Sign up to help us spread the word about these important issues, and to help raise money for trauma education!
For any of you that believe in the importance of COVID-19 vaccines, or those that see the importance of tackling trauma in our state community, then help us to spread the word about this event. Call your coworkers, your friends, your family. Refer them to this site, and maybe even encourage them to run in a group with you!
If TEN people that you refer sign up for this event, we will make sure that you get a Straight Outta Quarantine Hat showing your dedication to getting out the word!
We will have packet pick-up available the week before the race. Pickup will be on a specific day, to be announced, in both Phoenix and Tucson. If you would rather not pick up your race materials, you will have the option to select shipping at checkout.
