Join us for the BIO 2017 5K Run/Walk, held Monday, June 19th at 7:30 am in conjunction with the BIO International Convention. The picturesque 5K course will follow a flat trail alongside the beautiful San Diego Harbor. Registration for the BIO 5K Run/Walk will open in April.
We invite BIO International Convention attendees and the San Diego community to participate in the 5K and learn more about the 40+ organizations participating in the BIO Patient Advocacy Pavilion and the incredible work they do to advance the discovery, development, and delivery of new treatments for patients. In addition to raising awareness, developing policy agendas, and advocating on behalf of their communities of patients and caregivers, these organizations are also helping to drive the development of new medicines for patients by funding research, developing patient registries, and collecting patient preference information. Learn more about the Patient Advocacy Pavilion at BIO 2017.
Prizes will be awarded to 5K participants with the most colorful, craziest costumes so consider bringing humorous wigs or other props!
