Take a Breath For Sarcoidosis Virtual 5K Run & 1 Mile Walk

Event Dates: Saturday, April 24 thru Saturday, May 8, 2021

Due to the current pandemic of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to transition our annual Take a Breath for Sarcoidosis 5K run & 1 mile walk to a virtual run and walk. Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our participants and community. While we will not all be walking or running together, we hope you will join us to walk or run from wherever you are in support of our Life & Breath Foundation families.

Please join us for our virtual run & walk between April 24 - May 8, 2021! Each 5k and 1 mile walk participant will receive a t-shirt and custom face mask showing your support for the Life & Breath Foundation and for those dealing with Sarcoidosis. 

April 24 - May 8, 2021

Anywhere and everywhere!

Virtual Race Info

What is a Virtual Race?

During this time of CoVid-19 restrictions, we are not allowed to gather in groups and hold large, in-person events.  So instead of an In-Person race, we are offering a virtual run to support the cause of the Life & Breath Foundation and have fun with racing in a location of our own choosing

A virtual run means you choose your course and time to run or walk - your place, your pace! Between April 24 - May 8 we will be accepting results. You may register for the 5K or 1 Mile distance.  You can start any time and use the RaceJoy app to track and submit, or use your phone, fitness tracker, or treadmill readout to show us your distance and time.


Submitting results is not required, but if you would like to see your results counted on our leaderboard- please use one of the methods listed below. After submitting your results, click VIEW FINISHER CERTIFICATE to get a printable certificate showing your name and race time. 

Using RaceJoy to track your race and submit your results:

We’ve made it easy to upload your results to the Virtual Event, using RaceJoy.  You’ll need to download the RaceJoy app: https://www.racejoy.net/download (or choose your favorite App provider)  It’s available for your Android or iPhone.

When you’ve downloaded the app, set up your profile (Name, City, Email Address, DOB) so that RunSignUp can let RaceJoy know that you’ve registered for a race with RaceJoy Tracking. You can also set up a Tracking Number (optional) so that your friends and family can send you messages of support while you are completing your virtual race.

Once you have confirmed your race and distance on RaceJoy, that’s all you need to do until you are ready to race! 

RACEJOY will go live approximately 1 week before Race Day. All those registered will receive an email with further information at that time. 


The results are open starting on 4/24 through 5/8 so you can run your virtual race and submit your time! Open the app and confirm your race.  Click START TRACKING to let the app know!  You will see a message that tells you to turn off your WiFi on your phone; the app runs solely on cell phone connection.  If you keep the WiFi on it will skew the tracking.

That’s it!  As you complete each mile, RaceJoy will give you an audio status update.  When you have completed your distance the app will let you know your completion time and automatically send your results to RunSignUp for inclusion in the race results.  If for some reason your results do not upload automatically, you will see instructions for uploading them manually.  You can also send a screenshot of your results to andrea@bluecheetahtiming.com

Don't worry, we will be sending out instructions via email shortly before race day! 


Don’t want to use RaceJoy? No problem!  Go to the Registration page and click on RESULTS. Click on SUBMIT VIRTUAL RESULTS, look up your name or bib # and add your time results


One final option for submitting results – email andrea@bluecheetahtiming.com with your name, email address, and bib #.  Include a screen shot of your sports watch, phone fitness tracker, or a photo of your treadmill readout that shows your time and distance completed.


Fundraisers (Individual or Team) and Donations

Fundraising for this virtual race is optional!  During the registration process, you will see the BECOME A FUNDRAISER page.  On this page, you can Become a Fundraiser and/or join a Team, make a donation, or just continue on with your registration.  To just continue with your registration, click CONTINUE at the bottom of the page. When you register for the "Take a Breath for Sarcoidosis" race, you have the opportunity to become a fundraiser. You can include your friends, family, and coworkers in your support of the fight against Sarcoidosis. Peer-to-peer fundraising is a vital component of the Life & Breath Foundation, which makes our work possible.  Please encourage your friends and family members to make a contribution to your individual fundraiser.  There is no minimum amount required, but we encourage each individual fundraiser to strive to raise $100.00 or more, and each team to raise $1000.00 or more.

How it works:

Register for the race and click "BECOME A FUNDRAISER".  Name your fundraiser, add an inspirational message, and set a goal.
Encourage your friends, family and co-workers to contribute to your fundraising efforts by visiting the "Life & Breath"  page and click DONATE.  There, they can search for your fundraiser name and donate to your total.

Do you want to create a team?  First, complete your individual fundraiser, then scroll down to "create a team" and name your team.  You will be the team captain and any donations will count toward your team total.

Encourage your friends, family and co-workers to register for the race and join your team. When they register for the race they can also become fundraisers and join your team.

Those that don't want to register for the race can click "DONATE" to  make donations to an individual OR directly to a team.  
Please contact andrea@bluecheetahtiming.com for questions regarding fundraisers

TEAM CAPTAINS - Create a custom URL to share with your friends and encourage them to register/donate.  This is done when you set up your team, or can be changed after.  When you log into Run Sign Up, click the circle in the upper right hand corner, then Profile.  Scroll down to FUNDRAISING and find your team info.  Click EDIT FUNDRAISER to change your URL, add a photo, or change other information.  Click "send email" to contact all your team members.
