Every year, FSR’s Team KISS hosts our Annual Team KISS 5K Run/Walk event in a major US city. On April 28th, 2018 this year’s official event will be held in the beautiful city of Atlanta, Georgia!
We’d love to have you join us in Atlanta, however we know not everyone is able to travel. If you still want to be a part of the movement as a Team KISS 5K Run/Walk event supporter, you can get involved at the local level! Whether you intend to lead your own independent walk, join a nearby event, or just walk on your own, we want to give you all the tools you need to be successful as you join our fight to advance sarcoidosis research. Patients will not receive the answers they so desperately need without the team of sarcoidosis fighters (like you!) we have worldwide who are also dedicated to investing in innovative, patient-centered research efforts.
Additionally, we are excited to share with you a new opportunity available to walk leaders that we hope will remove barriers to hosting a walk and offset the costs; The Team KISS Walk Leader Funding Grant. This funding is intended to cover costs necessary to plan, prepare, and execute a successful 5K Run/Walk. The deadline for applications is October 31st and awardees will be notified by November 17th.
If you’re interested in hosting an independent Team KISS walk in your hometown next April, take a look at our application for more information about the grant application and reporting requirements.
Feel free to email Angela, FSR Development Manager if you have any questions about the grant application process or to talk about your interest in hosting a 5K Run/Walk in your city next April.
FSR will work to provide as much additional support as we can for our dedicated walk leaders leading up to the event date. We want to begin working with YOU to make your walk as successful as possible!
