This, our third annual 5K & Family Fun Day, honors Jenn Lawson’s memory, her passion for running and a healthy lifestyle, and the importance of family. Proceeds from this charitable event will help provide access to high-quality pediatric and maternal healthcare services for economically vulnerable expectant mothers and their children through our primary beneficiaries: Virginia Hospital Center and Arlington Pediatric Center. 

This year’s 5K and Family Fun Day — scheduled for November 18, 2017, at the Knights of Columbus in Arlington, Virginia — includes a challenging, certified 5K course (9am) and a Family Fun Day festival (9am-1pm) featuring a kids’ fun run with Teddy the Racing President, live music from Gutterball Kingpin, moon bounces, rock climbing wall, obstacle course, inline jumper, human hungry hippo, food trucks, a beer garden, corn hole, face painting, balloon animals and more.

NEW FOR 2017: There’s an option to register your child for care during the 5K (until 10:30am) so that parents can run without worry! Provided by EverWonder Camps, this registration option is available for potty-trained kids, ages 3 and up. (For our younger friends, strollers are welcome on the 5K course in the final wave.) Come one, come all!

More information about our 5K & Family Fun Day is available on our event & FAQs page.

With your help, we have reached many milestones. But we still have work to do because mothers and babies need our support year-round. Your donation will help us continue to serve economically vulnerable mothers and infants by giving them access to quality maternal and pediatric healthcare and a fair start at life.
