On Wednesday, Oct. 18, the National Eye Institute will host its fourth 5K “Walk/Run/Roll” on the NIH campus, starting at 11:30 a.m. The course will begin (rain or shine) on the lawn in front of Bldg. 1.

NIH Recreation and Welfare Association fitness instructors will lead a warm-up. Enjoy music, meet the NIH Police K-9 unit and view a demo. In addition, attendees can learn about the NIH Blood Bank and a family dinner program at the Children’s Inn at NIH. Keyworkers for the Combined Federal Campaign will also be available to chat about charities.

The walk/run/roll will start at 12:10. The course will exit campus, circumnavigate its perimeter and return through security (so remember to bring your ID badge). This event is sponsored by NEI in partnership with the Office of Research Services’ Division of Amenities and Transportation Services and the R&W. 

Sign language interpretation will be available. If you need additional reasonable accommodation to participate, contact Lilly Sadler at or (301) 451-8007.
