The National Eye Institute will host its annual 5K on Thursday, Oct. 24. This year’s event is a part of the Combined Federal Campaign. 

Festivities and a group warm-up kick off at 11:30 a.m. in front of Bldg. 1, followed by the start at noon. Get your vision screened and try out the NEI virtual reality eye disease simulator. Food will be available for purchase truck-side. To register or to volunteer, go to Questions? Contact Lilly Sadler at or (301) 451-8007. 

Important: The 5K course follows the campus perimeter. Participants will need their PIV cards to re-enter campus.

This year’s NIH campaign theme is “Show Some Love.” With the help of the CFC, NIH’ers have the chance to help those in need by reaching this year’s goal of $2 million. Look for organizations or causes that are meaningful to you by searching
