2016 JB-LF Memorial 5k & family fun day

JB-LF5KlogoWow! What a day! We were overwhelmed by and thankful for the amazing turn out and energy at our 2016 event.

Race results (including teams) posted here.  And lots of great pictures posted on our Facebook Page. Stay tuned for more photos and videos as well as our fundraising results. Last year, the JB-LF funded newborn wellness care for 240 economically vulnerable infants at the Arlington Pediatric Center. We are thankful for your support and can’t wait to determine how to put this year’s proceeds to work for healthy moms and healthy babies. Still time to donate to this year’s campaign here.

Jennifer Bush-Lawson Foundation Memorial 5K & Family Fun Day  |  Arlington, VA

Jennifer was an avid runner. To honor Jennifer’s memory and passion for running, a healthy lifestyle and the importance of family, the Jennifer Bush-Lawson Foundation hosts a yearly fundraising event in partnership with the Virginia Hospital Center Foundation and to benefit Arlington Pediatric Center and the Virginia Hospital Center Women’s OB Clinic.

The 5K and Family Fun Day includes a challenging certified 5K course (9am), a fun run for kids (10:15am), and a Family Fun Day festival (9am-1pm) that includes music, moon bounces, rock climbing walls, obstacles courses, delicious food trucks, a beer garden, face painting, balloon animals and more.  Raffle on site includes two signed Washington Capitals jerseys!  It is sure to be exciting for all. Check out pictures from 2015’s event.
