Proceeds raised at the SHP Causeway FunD Run/Walk benefit School of Health Professions (SHP) student scholarships.

The event was originally postponed and now is moving forward as a planned Virtual 5K and not a cancelled. We are not issuing refunds pursuant to the Waiver of Release of Liability agreement clause accepted during your online registration (see below). You would not have been able to proceed and complete your registration without acknowledging it.

The event is a fundraiser for our student scholarship fund and issuing refunds would greatly impact the fundraising aspect and purpose of the event. Please know and understand that the decision to originally postpone and then go “virtual” was made as a major academic health science center in response to concerns related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We greatly appreciate your understanding and your continued support as we prepare future health care professionals who will serve you and your family as critical members of your health care team.
