We are pleased to announce our 11th annual LECOM 5K as a healthful event that enables you to walk or run either our 3.1-mile course or one-mile course. LECOM Medical Fitness and Wellness Center encourages an active lifestyle throughout our great nation. So, we are maintaining our virtual option for those who are unable to attend our live event. Our virtual option does not require a timing device for you to participate, but you have the option of posting your time on the registration site to see how your time compares with others from around the country. Our live event will have the option to utilize timing devices and bibs so you can either compete for a place medal, or just go for a personal best. The primary focus of both events is on the students who will be the future of our healthcare. 


We have seen the heightened risk that has faced our medical professionals over the past four years. They are stalwarts on the front line, providing care to those in need of medical attention and risking their own lives to save others. Our profession is a noble one, and mindful of those currently in the battle, our efforts now will benefit those who will serve in years to come. 


All proceeds from the 5K event will benefit the LECOM Student Scholarship Fund, helping to defray the educational costs of our future health care providers from LECOM.


LECOM is an institution that trains Osteopathic Physicians, Pharmacists, Dentists, and Podiatrists. Since its inception, LECOM has proven itself as an educational institution that encourages and supports its scholars through and beyond their years of study. Our Annual LECOM Student Scholarship Galas are the chief generator of resources that are used to assist students in defraying and offsetting the cost of their medical education. Each year, we raise millions of dollars in scholarship aid for our deserving students. In a time during which there is an increased need for primary care physicians, the need for successfully graduated medical practitioners is felt now more intensely than ever before.
