About the Event
Every September, more than 400 attendees — medical professionals, brain aneurysm survivors, friends, and families — come together for a dynamic timed 5K run/walk followed by a festive afterparty.
This family-friendly event is an opportunity to remember and honor friends and family members who have been affected by brain aneurysms. All proceeds support the wonderful efforts of the Brain Aneurysm Foundation, and fully fund the annual Cynthia Lynn Sherwin Chair of Research grant.
2021 Event Recap
The 8th Annual TeamCindy™ 5K Run for Research took place virtually on Saturday, September 11, 2021. Virtual participants received a branded wrist wallet, ran/walked on or before the event date, and used #TeamCindyRun2021 to share pictures and engage on social media. The awards ceremony was also virtual, and featured a dance party with a live DJ.
Sponsored prizes were awarded in the following categories: most funds raised, team captain with the most members, and a random lottery-based drawing for all participants.
Despite being the second year in a row that the event was virtual, we raised more than $45,000 during Brain Aneurysm month!
While we may have had a successful 2021 event, the extensive funding lost as a result of COVID-19 shows us that this is just the beginning. Let’s continue to support the BAF in serving its mission each day. There is no US without YOU!
