Join Ayden’s Army on April 9 as we embark on Mission POSSIBLE!  The main event - a 1 mile walk and a 5k run - is to show support for Ayden as he completes his third month of chemotherapy treatment. The in-person event will occur in AZ, with virtual hubs in Rochester MN, Berwyn PA, Washington DC and anywhere else you’re located! Parents of Ayden’s school friends, children of Ayden’s parents' friends and everyone in between, your participation is both welcome and encouraged! 

GREAT HEARTS STUDENTS: If you'd like to show up for free use code "GHSTUDENT". Free participants will not get a tshirt (even though you'll fill out the form for one in the registration process - please select "Skip the Shirt"). Orange attire highly recommended!!

WASHINGTON, DC ATTENDEES: 11am ET start from George Mason Memorial. We will walk the 2.1 mile loop around the Tidal Basin.

BERWYN/PAOLI, PA ATTENDEES: 8:15am ET start of 5k run. 9am ET prayer. 9:10am ET 1-mile walk. Meet at the south parking lot of the Daylesford Abbey, 220 S Valley Rd, Paoli PA.

All proceeds will be used to support Ayden’s journey with cancer. Because we are not set up as a 501(c)(3), donations will not be tax deductible. 

Ayden will be set up in a chair along the route in AZ to cheer on his army from a distance. He is so excited to see you all come out and support him! For those joining from afar, FaceTime him on the day of from your virtual location, send pictures and be sure to post on social media using #AydensArmy!

NOTE: If you're willing to volunteer to help with logistics on day-of, please email Ayden's Aunt Becky at [email protected]. Also, note that this is not a "race"! There will be no timers or winners/losers or anything else that is associated with a race. This is a walk and "fun run" only :)
