Running for Rare… Anywhere!

Through the satellite program, runners from anywhere across the globe are invited to join NORD’s Charity Running Team in any race of their choosing – marathon, 5K, wheelchair race, cycling, walking, climbing, or even an Iron Man, all while raising funds for rare diseases. Runners can choose to participate in an event solo or create a team. Based on a runner’s fundraising commitment, the satellite program offers a variety of benefits including:

  • A dedicated fundraising page to raise funds for NORD’s mission.
  • Access to runner resources such as nutrition and training suggestions.
  • Team singlet.
