We held the first annual Emory Critical Care Center 5K in October of 2018. It was created as a way to let critical care faculty and staff know that “I see you (ICU)”: that we recognize that jobs in critical are demanding physically, emotionally and spiritually. We wanted to create a space where we could come together as a work family to celebrate our wins and honor those losses that we have held with us over the past year. Former patients and their families are invited to join us and share their “Stories of Survival” with us to remind us of the incredible impact we have on the lives of members of the community.  

While we had to hold off on hosting this run in 2020 and 2021 because of the COVID pandemic, we brought the race back in 2022, this time with a new name. The Alyssa Majesko Memorial 5K was named in honor of a beloved Emory critical care physician and palliative care champion who also loved triathlons.
