Virtual Below the Belt: Stride and Thrive 5k and 1 mile run/walk

The Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service fifth annual Below the Belt—Stride and Thrive 5K and 1 mile run/walk has been transformed to a virtual celebration. We are inviting you to run, walk, skip, hop, or couch surf from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. EDT on Sunday, June 7. You can walk or run around your living room, on a treadmill in your basement, in your driveway or on a private path in your neighborhood, at a 6-foot distance from others. All registered participants who complete a 5K (~7500 steps) can submit their times via the results page. This will work on an honor system for reporting the steps of your own feet and not those of your child or pet.

Join us on Facebook (Johns Hopkins Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service) during the run/walk (8 a.m. to 2 p.m.) on Sunday, June 7. You will hear from Janet Weise and Kathy Drake (race co-chairs), Amy Brown (emcee), Jesse Grant (singing the National Anthem), Karyn Peluso (survivor speaker), our presenting sponsor NFM Lending, partner Sibley Memorial Hospital, and our amazing KGOS doctors.

The registration website is open, so please register if you have not already done so and continue to let your friends know. It's a way to connect to others and continue to build community during this challenging time.
