Race the Helix - Greenwood

October 2, 2021

Registration is now open here!

It’s hard to believe that Race the Helix has been supporting families impacted by genetic disorders for 11 years!

Due to the current state of the COVID pandemic, the decision has been made to transition the 2021 Race the Helix – Greenwood to a completely virtual event. We had hoped to be able to plan a safe and fun in-person event, but the health and safety of our participants, volunteers, and community must be our top priority.

All current in-person registrations will be automatically transferred to virtual registrations.

Join us on October 2 for the 11th annual Race the Helix from wherever you are! Sign up for the 5K ($25) or 1 mile event (Free) by September 10th the be guaranteed a t-shirt! All proceeds support the Greenwood Genetic Center Foundation.

We are so grateful for your support of Race the Helix and ultimately, the patients and families of those impacted by genetic disorders. We hope that you will enjoy your walk or run wherever you are!
