For the last six years, FSR has hosted a 5K Run/Walk to raise awareness for sarcoidosis and this year’s event is on track to be our most exciting one yet!

Come join FSR and our sarc superheros in New Orleans on April 27th at Audubon Park. Registration is $30 and includes a 2019 Team KISS t-shirt, complementary food tickets for our 3 food vendors, and entry to win our door prizes! One of this year’s door prizes is a jersey signed by NFL player and sarcoidosis advocate Zach Kerr. Zach will be attending the event along with his mom, sarc warrior Tinya Kerr. Register below for chance to meet him after the race!

After the race, we’ll have plenty of family-friendly activities in our Race Village, including face painting, balloon animals, and a true New Orleans-style Second Line led by the Grammy-Nominated Hot 8 Brass Band! Our food vendors include La Cocinita Tacos, Kona Ice Sno-cone, and Creole Creamery Ice Cream. Additionally, Dr. Lesley Saketkoo of Tulane University will give a presentation, called Patients are the Power! Making Strides in Sarcoidosis Advocacy, Education, Health and Research.
