Metal Walk & Fun Run
The Methodist Sports Medicine Research and Education Foundation embraces a crucial long-term role in the advancement of orthopedic medicine.
The ATI Foundation is dedicated to assisting children with physical impairments.
The goal of this special event is to raise funds for both organizations' missions.
This 1K/5K event was created to celebrate individuals returning to an active lifestyle following joint replacements and orthopedic implants. Participants who fit this mission are invited to participate at no cost, as this is your day of triumph over pain.
(Please note, all participants do need to register below). Family and friends are encouraged to register and join you in your celebration.
Open to all who wish to participate in the 5K or support those Metal Walk Participants participating in the 1K
Note: Event shirts will be given out to the first 200 participants registered. Event day registrants are not guaranteed an event shirt, so advance registration is encouraged.
This event is a fun, non-competitive walk/run to raise money for the Methodist Sports Medicine Research and Education Foundation and the ATI Foundation.
The Metal Walk is designed as a unique event for individuals with joint replacements or other orthopedic implants, and their supporting family and friends. Come celebrate triumph over pain and a return to a physically active lifestyle. All participants may choose from either a 1K or a 5K course.
The event is open to all: competitive runners, leisurely joggers, walkers, families, etc. The course at Eagle Creek park is paved and begins at the Beach Shelter area. The walk/run will not be officially sanctioned or chip timed. We will have a clock at the finish line for those who are interested in viewing their approximate time as they finish.
While there is an option to register individually, we are also encouraging participants join together and register as teams to help raise additional funds by obtaining pledges. Prizes will be awarded to the team with the most participants and to the team that raises the most money.
