Help us Support the 6th Annual Jim Tracy 5K race to Defeat ALS


While we might not be together physically, we can still support each other virtually!

This year, faced with the innumerable challenges that COVID-19 has presented and in light of the vulnerability of the ALS community at this time, Sadie Scott, a senior from the San Francisco University High School, and chair of this years race—will be hosting virtual warm-ups this Sunday, April 26 in honor of the 6th Annual Jim Tracy 5K Race to defeat ALS.

The race was founded in 2015 in honor of beloved track and cross country coach Jim Tracy. He sadly passed away in 2014 after fighting a courageous battle with ALS, a fatal neurodegenerative disease. He is remembered as having inspired those he touched to “never give up,” no matter what the challenge.

We then encourage you to “run the Jim Tracy 5K, your way!”

We hope that you’ll get outdoors by yourself or with your family to run 5 kilometers while following your community’s social distancing guidelines. We encourage you to post before, during, and after the event and to tag the ALS Association (@alsagoldenwest) so we can re-share how you ran the Jim Tracy 5K.

Learn more about this incredible cause, sign up for free as a virtual participant, and consider making a donation at jimtracy5k.org. We hope you can join us this Sunday. Thank you!
