Chuck’s Virtual Run, Walk, Wheel 5 KM for Dystonia 2020 – Your Run, Your Way

DMRF Canada is pleased to be hosting Chuck’s Virtual Run, Walk, and Wheel for Dystonia to raise funds for research and patient support programs.

This year’s 5K will still continue, but due to COVID-19, it has been transformed to a strictly virtual, national event. Starting May 31, 2020, and running for the entire month of June, participants from all across Canada, will be able to raise awareness of dystonia, and fundraise for critical research and support programming.

What is Chuck’s Virtual Run, Walk, Wheel 5KM?

Chuck’s Virtual Run, Walk and Wheel is an event that can be run, walked or wheeled from any location you choose and over the entire month of June!

You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, in your home or outside, while practicing physical distancing. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. This event will have all the same great benefits as our in-person event in Toronto but will respect the need to uphold physical distancing due to COVID-19.  This also means that Chuck’s Virtual Run, Walk and Wheel will be available nationwide!


What do I get if I register for this event? 

Once you sign up to register for this virtual event, you will receive your very own Chuck’s Virtual Run, Walk and Wheel participant package in the mail! This package will include Chuck’s Run swag, and special signage to help raise awareness of the event! We are encouraging all participants to take lots of photos of you in your gear, to help raise awareness of Chuck’s Run – and dystonia – to others in your community.

This is truly an opportunity to unite the dystonia community, all while raising funds for a great cause!


Wondering where and how you should complete your virtual run?

That’s totally up to you! Run, walk or wheel your 5K anywhere you like, all across Canada. Whether you’re in Victoria, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Regina, Montreal or Halifax or any other city in Canada, this event gives you the flexibility to complete your race, your way, on your schedule…and the great news is that you have the entire month of June to meet your 5KM goal!  

Completed courses and timing will be accounted for using the honour system

You can also upload a photo of your results to show proof of your finish time using your preferred tracking app.
