YOU CAN RUN THE 2020 AMPS 5K TODAY!
Our 8th Annual 5K Walk/Run Fundraiser is going on now and ends on August 8th!
This year it is a virtual event and we would love for you to post your 5K photos on Facebook and/or Instagram with the hashtag #2020AMPS5K
You can run or walk the 5K (3.2 miles) any time between now and August 8th.
We will have some surprises and videos for you along the way, so be sure to sign up and then also join our Facebook event or instagram at Stopchildhoodpain
There will be prizes for top 2 males and females as well as largest socially distant team and biggest fundraiser. So get organizing now and join us!
The cost to participate is $20.00. Funds raised towards this walk/run will benefit the RND Educational Foundation which in turn supports the Amplified Musculoskeletal Pain Program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
The money raised will go towards research into AMPS, supplies for the gym at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and/or for other needs that arise running the AMPS program and researching this syndrome.

Our annual 5K walk/run raised over $15,000 to benefit the Amplified Musculoskeletal Pain Syndrome program at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). The money is being used to purchase new equipment for the gym. Thanks to everyone who came out and participated or who supported through donations!
Many of the runners were former patients who were unable to walk prior to completing the program at CHOP. It was amazing to see them walk/run over two miles!
