Welcome to the 5th Annual Aniridia 5k Fun Run and 1 Mile Family Walk (Saturday Sept. 23, 2017). Proceeds from the event will benefit the Vision For Tomorrow Foundation, a 501c3 not for profit organization that supports research for treatment and cures for children living with Aniridia, a rare and blinding eye condition, in which our daughter Haley was diagnosed at birth.

The 5K and 1 mile walk will begin at the foot of the Fountain Street Steps, leading to the Manayunk ToePath, in which Runners and Walkers will begin their journey along the Historic Manayunk Towpath.

Virutal 5K we are offering a fun remote VIRTUAL 5K option for those outside of the Philly area that want to support the Vision For Tomorrow Foundation, simply signup and RUN or WALK wherever you are between Sept 1 - 23th 2017. Virtual racing can be done on a treadmill at home or at the gym, at the beach, with friends, alone, in the evening, or at the break of dawn. It's your choice.
