Q&A:
Q: Do I have to run a 5K?
A: Nope! You can run or walk a 5K, run or walk a shorter distance, donate, or spread the word about the Foley Foundation's mission and work. 

Q: Last year, we all met in Rock Creek Park and ran. How will this year be different?
A: For everyone's safety, we are not planning a big gathering at this time. But we will be together virtually! More details to come!
