The 8th Annual Run for the Ring 5K Run/Walk and Fun Run is taking place on Saturday, August 13th, 2022. Early bird race entry for both adults and the Kids Zone/Fun Run is valid now through June 30th. This year’s run, presented by Empower, is shaping up to break last year’s records, with over 400 serious runners looking to qualify for the legendary BOLDERBoulder, walking enthusiasts burning calories for a cause, and kids ready to have the time of their lives.
Join Barbara Davis Center patients, loyal supporters, and running fanatics to run for the brass ring – the cure for type 1 diabetes. All event proceeds support the efforts and programs of The Guild of the Children’s Diabetes Foundation whose mission is to fund research, promote diabetes awareness and education, assist families in need, provide continuing education scholarships, sponsor social activities for children and their families and more!
“It’s been such a great honor to be involved with the important mission of the Children’s Diabetes Foundation and their annual ‘Run for the Ring Run’,” said Joseph Smolen, Empower senior vice president Core and Institutional Markets. “This year we’re very excited about the possibility of hosting a record number of runners for this event, which serves to highlight the exceptional work the foundation is doing to focus on patient support, diabetes research, and public awareness. It’s also a great opportunity to come together as a community in a fun and healthy way to support diabetes research.”
