The event raised money for those impacted by COVID-19.

Cone Health thanks those who took part in the #ConeHealthCares Virtual 5k/10K. The event raised $7,874.06 for those impacted by COVID-19 through the COVID-19 Support Fund. 


The support fund was created to support patients, caregivers, families and communities in our region in response to the coronavirus pandemic.  

19 teams and 234 people took part in the event. People signed up to run in a virtual 5k or 10k. They completed their run between May 17 and May 31. Participants created their own route and ran or walked the distance they choose. 

“In such a trying time, seeing our community pitch in and get moving has lifted spirits in ways you can’t even imagine,” says Jamie Athas, wellness director, Cone Health.  “We thank all of the participants from the bottom or our hearts.”
