ASH Foundation Run/Walk

Sunday, December 8, 2024
San Diego, California

Begin your day in a fun, healthy, and philanthropic way by participating in the 111th annual ASH Foundation Run/Walk before attending the sessions on Sunday, December 8. Participants may run or walk through the designated event course in scenic San Diego, choosing either a 3K or 5K route. Not attending in person this year? Don’t worry! You can still support the Foundation by choosing your own virtual 3K or 5K route. Watch the daily leaderboard for your scores and challenge yourself against your colleagues!

Sign up today and invite your friends and family to support your efforts by donating to the ASH Foundation in honor of you or your team! 

Proceeds from all individual and group registration fees as well as additional individual donations will benefit the ASH Greatest Needs Fund. ASH and the ASH Foundation may opt to designate a portion of or all corporate sponsorship revenues associated with the run/walk to help support the cost of administering the event.
