OHSU statement on the 2021 Portland Marathon

OHSU has made the difficult decision to postpone our sponsorship of the 2021 Portland Marathon. Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of all Oregonians, but our ability to fulfill that mission is currently challenged by the unprecedented influx of patients severely ill with COVID-19. Our hospitals are at their fullest capacity, our members are exhausted, and we are doing everything we can to avoid adding to their burden. Participation in the marathon, as a runner or volunteer, is, of course, a personal decision for our members and the general public, but as Oregon’s academic health center and a public leader in health and science, OHSU will not be sponsoring this year’s event.
