Race the Helix - Treadmill Challenge

Race the Helix® began in 2010 as one family's way to raise awareness of genetic disorders and provide support to an organization that has supported them. Through their unwavering commitment and our exciting partnership with Front Line Genomics, the GGC Foundation's community 5K has grown into an international event with 2016 treadmill challenges coming up in Boston, Vancouver and San Francisco!

The next Race the Helix Treadmill Challenge will take place at the Festival of Genomics in Boston on June 28-29.

There are three ways for you to be a part of this great event - no matter where you are!

1. Be a sponsor - Become a Helix Gold, Silver or Bronze sponsor and enjoy benefits at the Festival of Genomics and afterward!
