Every year, Lookin’ For A Cure 5K events light up cities across the United States. These events are not just about running, they are about igniting awareness, and unity in the fight against Ocular Melanoma. By participating, you’re not only support groundbreaking research but also bringing together individuals affected by Ocular Melanoma.

A Cure In Sight collaborates with leading research facilities and dedicated physicians that specialize in Ocular Melanoma treatment. Together, we channel the net proceeds from these events into ongoing research projects and patient support programs. Your involvement directly contributes to advancing the quest for a cure.

Come be a part of Lookin’ For a Cure Virginia/Washington, DC in the serene surroundings of beautiful and historic Fort Hunt Park On Sunday, May 19th, from 7 AM to 10 AM. Join A Cure In Sight for a walk or run that goes beyond the scenic beauty of Fort Hunt Park. Together, we’ll take steps to combat Ocular Melanoma, a rare eye cancer that is diagnosed in approximately 3,000 new cases each year across the United States. Bring your friends and family—all ages are welcome to walk or run with us.

Embark on a beautiful, picturesque journey through Fort Hunt Park along the beautiful Mount Vernon Trail. Mount Vernon Trail is a popular recreation resource and critical regional transportation connection. The trail hosts over one million pedestrians and bicyclists annually. During peak periods, the trail north of Alexandria is one of the most heavily used multi-use trails in the country. The National Park Service originally constructed the Mount Vernon Trail in the 1970s and 1980s. The Mount Vernon Trail winds alongside the Potomac River offering uninterrupted views of Washington, D.C.’s skyline. A run, walk, or cycle along the trail leads to all of the same sites that can be reached by car on the parallel section of the parkway, offering you a unique opportunity to connect with nature while contributing to a noble cause.

We will be gathering at Picnic Area C-002 which offers ample parking in a paved lot. Take the exit for Fort Hunt Park and follow the signs to the park and our specific picnic area. Click on the link below for a map of Mount Vernon Trail and our meeting location at Fort Hunt Park.
