CISCRP Announces 2nd Annual Virtual Fitness Challenge to Recognize Medical Heroes
Date:4/2/2020

On April 15, the Center for Information & Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP) will be initiating the 2nd annual Medical Hero Appreci-a-thon to bring the global clinical research community together to express their appreciation for all “Medical Heroes” – medical and healthcare professionals, researchers and study volunteers. CISCRP invites the public to participate in this free month-long virtual fitness opportunity.

Participants can share the distance they will go to recognize Medical Heroes by tracking any form of exercise—cycling, running, elliptical, weightlifting, sit-ups, yoga, stair climbing, pet-walking and other physical activities—on the Appreci-a-thon portal. Donations received in support of the virtual fitness challenge provide educational programs designed to help patients and their families navigate the clinical research process.

“Last year, nearly 400 people across industry, research, advocacy, and patient communities participated globally in this virtual appreciation event and the spirit of support and teamwork was inspiring,” said event organizer Justine Holleran. “This year we’re hoping to see an even larger community participating in this virtual fitness challenge to raise awareness about clinical research and its importance to public health.”

“Clinical research education and awareness is even more critical today,” added Ellyn Getz, Associate Director, Development and Community Engagement, at CISCRP. “Medical, healthcare and research professionals are working tirelessly to provide care and treatment. And patients, their families and the public are seeking information and hope. Join us in showing your support and appreciation for the many dedicated ‘Medical Heroes’ around the world by participating in this virtual fitness challenge!”

The Medical Hero Appreci-a-thon virtual fitness challenge officially starts April 15th and runs through May 15th. Participants can register for free at https://www.ciscrp.org/events/appreci-a-thon.
