A group of lab professionals in UNI5K t-shirts standing next to a big sign that says "UNI5K - Unify for something greater."

Join us on July 24 for AACC’s first 5k walk/run being held to honor the power of laboratory medicine. This is the perfect opportunity to bond with colleagues while getting exercise, putting health first, and celebrating the laboratory profession.

The event will occur on a paved, dedicated path at the Anaheim Convention Center campus and is being hosted in partnership with the UNIVANTS of Healthcare Excellence Program, which is currently in its 5th year.

The UNIVANTS of Healthcare Excellence Program is a prestigious global award program that was created by Abbott in partnership with leading healthcare organizations across the globe with a common vision to inspire and celebrate healthcare excellence.

Every participant of the UNI5K event receives a commemorative UNI5K T-shirt, chip time, and discounted registration to an inaugural executive leadership exchange (ELX). ELX is an insightful and thought-provoking virtual educational forum being held this October with opportunities to earn up to 13 ACCENT credits. More details on ELX will be provided soon.


Online registration for the UNI5K opens April 10. The link will be made available here at that time.

We recommend signing up as soon as registration opens, as only a limited number of people can participate in the event.

Race Fee: $35


Once registration opens, you can create a new group/team as a first step of the online registration process.


No refunds will be granted.


All race registrants will get a packet with a UNI5K T-shirt and bib. UNI5K T-shirts are recommended for the walk/run in order to demonstrate unity and teamwork across our profession.

You can pick up your packet on:

  • Sunday, July 23 from 1 – 5 p.m. in the Anaheim Convention Center in Hall E.
  • Monday, July 24 (the morning of the UNI5K event) starting at 5:30 a.m. in the Grand Plaza.

If you are having someone else pick up your bib and shirt, they will need two things:

  1. A printed copy of your ID
  2. A printed, signed copy of your waiver. The waiver will be made available when registration opens.

No bibs will be given out without strict compliance to these rules. You do not need to print the waiver if you are picking up your own packet in person.

Don’t miss out!

We hope you join us, AACC, and your colleagues in this valuable walk/run as a celebration of health, healthcare excellence, and the future of laboratory medicine.

UNI5K T-shirts are recommended for the walk/run, demonstrating unity and teamwork across our profession. A group picture will be taken at the end of the walk/run.
