Run or walk anywhere!


Join us virtually on October 28th, 2023 at 10:30 am EST for the Second Annual Compatible with Life 5k!
Race, run for fun, or walk for Trisomy 13 and Trisomy 18 awareness and help raise funds for The Stella Effect.
**This year, upon registration, you have the option of participating as part of a team and collecting donations as a team! Let's maximize our fundraising for The Stella Effect and the families they support!**

The Stella Effect

The Stella Effect is a non-profit organization that supports families who have a child with Trisomy 18 or Trisomy 13 through celebration, advocacy, and community. Their mission is to help families celebrate their baby through every beautiful and hard moment and to fight alongside them, so they never have to fight alone.

Many parents are first introduced to their baby’s diagnosis as “incompatible with life.” While this diagnosis is in fact life limiting, these babies are compatible with life and worthy of celebration.

Please join us to raise awareness and support The Stella Effect in their mission to support these families.

Next Level Virtual Racing Experience

And just so you know, this isn’t any old virtual race! We are excited to partner with Run the Day and ESEO to bring you a next-level virtual racing experience.

Imagine a LIVE race announcer welcoming you, a live group chat and the feeling of real connection with other runners around the world… and did we mention prizes?!?!

Prepare to be motivated, inspired and entertained from your starting line all the way to your finish line - anywhere in the world (treadmills work too).

If you can’t join us live on race day, that’s not a problem! You will be able to participate and listen to an on-demand version of the event.

**You can register and participate from anywhere in the world. However the registration site we are using was previously only set up to handle US traffic. They are working on having the address section more international friendly but for now just select your country for "country", "International" in the state section, then type your city AND state/province in the city section if you live in a country that has that as part of your address.**
