Virtual Race


Stay active to support advanced practice pediatric nursing students!

For more than 40 years, the NAPNAP Foundation has been supporting the improvement of the quality of life for children and their families by funding clinical projects, continuing education, advanced nursing research and NP student education for members of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners. We support the field of advanced practice pediatric nursing so that our members can keep kids healthy!

The current pandemic has impacted every aspect of health care, including education and workforce development. The NAPNAP Foundation wants to support our students and we need you help. Join us for our first ever virtual race to raise money for NP students.

How does a virtual race work?

Have fun and stay healthy and safe by running, walking or biking safely in your own neighborhood, with the proper protective and social distancing measures. You can also participate from your home by tracking steps, running on your treadmill or using a stationary bike. The best part is that you can participate whenever your schedule permits between June 1 – July 5! The cost to participate is only $25 per event - walking, running or biking.

While there isn’t an official finish line to cross and we aren’t going to be checking up on you, you can submit your times and distances via social media using the hashtag #NPStudentsForward. If you do not use social media, you can also upload your images to our online collection. Those who successfully submit screenshots of times and distances will be entered to win NAPNAP swag. Our swag drawing will be held the week of July 6, so be sure to submit photos by the July 5 deadline!

Who benefits?

We all do! By supporting NP students, we’re helping to grow our profession and increase patient access to the high quality, evidence-based care that NPs provide to patients across the country.

With the money raised, the NAPNAP Foundation will offer financial resources to students as they continue their education and prepare for their certification exams. Specific opportunities will be shared later this summer and fall.
