Race for FH
FH Can’t Wait!
It is life threatening.
People with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) are in a race against time. Join the Race for FH to help raise funds that will find every person with FH, increase understanding of FH and ensure optimal care to save lives.
The 2019 Race for FH kicks off on April 8 and crosses the finish line on May 4 — Race for FH Challenge Day.
Help us reach our goal of raising $200,000.
Challenge Yourself. Challenge Your Community.
It's easy... choose how and when you race.
- Walk, run, bike, swim, climb, roller skate, or something else
- Form a team or participate on your own
- Race all in one day or complete a challenge over time
- Raise awareness, honor someone special or celebrate a milestone

Why I Race for FH
“I'm a wife, a mommy, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a sales professional working in technology & government, a gourmet mostly-vegan cook, a runner, haiku writer, traveler, lover of all people and every culture and I have FH.
I am passionate about life and living it to it's fullest. I refuse to die from this and I make choices every single day that help lower my cholesterol and keep me thriving! Finding the FH Foundation not only saved my life, but the lives of my family members who also have FH.”
Every gift matters
Early and accurate diagnosis and effective treatment can dramatically increase life expectancy for people with FH. Every dollar donated through the Race for FH helps improve diagnosis rates, increase understanding of FH and ensure optimal care to save lives.
$25 connects a person with FH with a community of others affected by FH.
$100 provides educational programs and materials to people with FH to help them understand their treatment options.
$250 trains a volunteer to raise awareness of FH in their community.
$500 supports advancing technology that can identify the 90% who don't know they have FH.
$1,000 helps fund the CASCADE FH® Registry -- the only ongoing research that shows how individuals with FH are diagnosed and treated in the U.S.
