Michigan Occupational Therapy Association


MiOTA - Annual 5K Race

MiOTA 5k PinThe Michigan Occupational Therapy Association's 3rd Annual 5K Walk, Run or Roll's purpose is to promote awareness of Occupational Therapy for the profession and consumers of our services within the state of Michigan.

This year the event will be held virtually and is open to conference attendees and those supporting occupational therapy. The race will be available from July 1 - September 30, 2020. 

What's a virtual event? A virtual race is a race that can be completed from any location you choose. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. Most participants will use apps on their cellular device to measure distance and time. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to ask! Just email the race director, Sarah

Cost of the run is $20 plus $2.50 processing fee. Participants will receive a reduced processing fee when registering multiple participants in one transaction

This year, each participant will receive a custom MiOTA pin (see image on right). Pins will be mailed about 1 week following registration. 

Awards will be given to the top finishers who run, walk or use a wheelchair. 

OT PROGRAM CHALLENGE: an award will be given to the occupational therapy program (OTR & OTA) with the most student, alumni and faculty participants. You can indicate your alma mater on the registration form.
