Ready, set, go! It’s time to get your walking or running shoes on and plan to participate in UOAA’s 2nd Annual Run for Resilience Ostomy 5k in Harrison Township, Michigan on Saturday, October 5, 2019. This Fun Run/Walk and Certified 5k will be held within Lake St. Clair Metropark at the West Playfield Shelter near the Nature Center, taking participants on the scenic board walk along Lake St. Clair. The flat, out-and-back, 5K course will start and finish near the Nature Center. This is a timed race on a certified course for 5K participants. The Fun run will utilize the same course without a timer.

This event is held annually to raise awareness of this life-saving surgery, empower those living with an ostomy or continent diversion, and raise funds to support UOAA’s programs and services. We encourage you to invite family, friends, co-workers, caregivers and others to join you at this special event to walk, run or just enjoy the family-friendly festivities.

All proceeds benefit the United Ostomy Associations of America, Inc. (UOAA), a 501(c)(3) organization. Donations are tax deductible.
