The Orthopaedic Research Society was thrilled to host the first annual ORS Turkey Trot: A Virtual 5K Race to Research. This event was designed to keep the world moving and make a difference for those impacted by musculoskeletal disorders. Participants from around the globe were encouraged to join us to walk, run, or roll between Sunday, November 19, 2023, and Sunday, November 26, 2023, from any location to raise funds for orthopaedic research.
