We are all facing an increasingly challenging time as we continue to navigate COVID-19. The uncertainly of this virus calls upon us to acknowledge how our daily life has dramatically changed. It also stresses the urgent need to step up interventions aimed at keeping ourselves, our families, donors, volunteers, our many partners at Johns Hopkins, including our Patient Ambassadors and Hopkins caregivers, safe and healthy.
In respect for everyone’s safety and health, we have rescheduled the Hebda Foundation Gala from April 24, 2021 to April 30, 2022 at the U.S. Naval Academy Stadium “N” Room.
We had planned and hoped to all be together in person on 3 October 2021 for Zack’s Run on the campus of the University of Maryland. After consultation with our partners at Hopkins, we have made a very tough decision to move to race from in person to virtual. Registration remains open until midnight of 2 October if you would like to still participate in our own version of Zack’s Run. We will mail you this year’s shirt after the virtual event closes.
Everyone’s safety remains our #1 priority. In the interim, if you wish support this cause by a direct donation, you can send your check payable to the “The Zachary Hebda Foundation” to:
The Hebda Foundation
Post Office Box 322
Linthicum, Maryland 21090.
Or visit the “donate” button on our main page to donate through PayPal.
Our sincere thanks for your continued support over the years! Stay healthy everyone!
