The Fundraising Competition is On: 3rd Annual Meeting 5k Fun Run and 1 Mile Fun Walk for NCS Research By Corey Fehnel, MD and Susanne Muehlschlegel, MD For the third time, the NCS Annual Meeting will hold its Fun Run for Research, a 5k run and onemile walk, sponsored by SAGE Therapeutics. New this year, a team fundraising competition will spice up the event. Runners, walkers, and virtual participants were able to form or join a team – either by institution or any other designation – to raise money for NCS research. Teams and individuals raised funds even if they did not plan on participating in the race or were unable to attend the meeting. All race participants will receive a high quality running tee shirt, but the team with the highest fundraising amount will receive the honor of Corey Fehnel, MD wearing a specially designed “Top Fundraiser” tee shirt with their company name or logo on the back. The competition for “Top Fundraiser” concluded on August 31, however all members can continue to fundraise for NCS research through October 15, 2016. Visit www.crowdrise.com/ NCSRunforResearch to make a tax deductible donation. An official announcement of total funds raised will be made in late October. All proceeds will go directly to the NCS Research Fund intended to sponsor the NCS research fellowship, to be given out for the second time this year. The run/walk kicks off on Friday, September 16 at 6:30 AM. The National Harbor course begins at the Gaylord National Resort &Convention Center, runs along the scenic Potomac River, and concludes back at the hotel in time for attendees to make it to the 8 AM morning sessions after showering. Whether you are an avid runner, a casual stroller, or even a first-time-ever participant, this is the event for you! What better way to kick off the Annual Meeting? What better way to compete for the honor of the “Top Fundraiser” tee shirt? Please join us for a great way to explore National Harbor, embark on a unique networking opportunity, burn some calories, and raise money for a great cause.   Susanne Muehlschlegel, MD 9
