Support Doctors for America's Race for Coverage!
Every year, 26,000 Americans die because they can't afford the health care they need. One in 7 Americans right now has no health insurance. We know. We see it affecting our patients every day.
This year is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform the lives of millions of people. 30,000,000 uninsured Americans will be able to sign up for health insurance by visiting HealthCare.gov starting October 1.
Far too few people know about this opportunity. In fact, millions are expected to miss out this year because they never even learned about it.
As doctors, medical students, and other health care providers, we've decided to reach as many people as we possibly can. We want to make sure every uninsured person hears about enrollment from someone they trust - a health care provider. We are planning a massive public education campaign to reach millions of people, but we need everyone's help to do it.
We're going into our communities to race for coverage and raise the resources we need to reach the uninsured. We're walking, running, biking, and swimming in community races from 5K's to marathons in the summer and fall.
It's a race against time, and we need your help:
1. Join us as a racer! Click on "Create a Fundraising Page" to get started.
2. Support a racer or our whole campaign! Every $100 will help 20 individuals or families get covered.
Thank you for your support! We can't do this without you!
