Started by two certified WOC nurses 5 years ago, UOAA’s “Run for Resilience Ostomy 5K” has blossomed into a major nationwide event to raise awareness of this life-saving surgery. This year's runs are the premier event in the U.S. for World Ostomy Day on October 6, 2018. It is also a key fundraiser to support UOAA’s programs and services.

Inspire and empower your ostomy patients, caregivers and families by running, walking, volunteering or cheering on participants in one of the nine Runs across the country being held on October 6th and 13th. Or sign-up to participate in the Virtual Run/Walk on October 6th from wherever you are located. Challenge your fellow WOC nurses in your region to support your efforts by creating a Fundraising Team and donating to UOAA, the leading ostomy patient support organization.

For complete details, run locations, registration and fundraising options, visit www.ostomy5k.org. You can also contact Christine Ryan, UOAA’s Executive Director, at Christine.ryan@ostomy.org or 207-985-9700 for more information.
