Be The Match Walk and Run
Be The Match raises funds for the search for blood cancer cures. Proceeds raised helped families afford treatment, supports and increases the world's largest and most diverse register of marrow donors, and funds crucial research projects.
The Be The Match Walk and Run is an annual event designed to raise money and celebrate the community of passionate volunteers that work tirelessly to save lives.
Held near beautiful Lake Harriet, both the 1K and 5K routes run along the Lake Harriet Parkway on paved road. The 5K route is one complete loop around the lake in a counter-clockwise direction and is USATF certified.
The 1K is an out-and-back route that ends near the event village, and the Tot Trot is approximately 150-200 feet.
