Thank you for joining us at the Inaugural Medical Heroes Appreciation 5K event!

It is said that the greatest gift is one which is given anonymously, giving when you don’t know whether you will get direct personal benefit. Medical Heroes give us this unique gift. Medical Heroes are the individuals who help advance public health and medical knowledge by taking part in clinical research trials. They are found in everyday places, and they deserve our gratitude.
