We’re pleased to announce the successful completion of the first-ever global, doctor-led running event, Run with Peter. Run With Peter is an initiative to empower and inspire a global community of physicians, healthcare teams and partners who run (or walk) together to raise money in support of medical research. The flagship event was held on June 12th, 2022 with physician runners participating globally from 75 countries, pledging to run 33,073 kilometers.
As a result of the run, Sermo unlocked a $250,000 donation to support various medical research causes, which were chosen by physicians participating in Run with Peter. Upon registration, participants selected the area of medical research and actual foundations they would like to receive a portion of the overall donation. The top 10 organizations physicians selected include The American Heart Association, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, International Society for Infectious Diseases and The Breast Cancer Research fund, among others.
Registration for Run with Peter 2023 is coming soon — stay tuned!
