The Race for Kids is aimed to raise awareness and funds for our Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and our Pediatric Physical, Occupational, and Speech departments. All proceeds will help purchase equipment and supplies needed to provide a continuum of care from our tiniest of patients in the NICU to our children with developmental delays receiving outpatient therapy services. Our goal is to enhance a child’s ability to learn, improve their physical function as well as support their need for independence. 

The deadline for online registration is Thursday, May 30; however, individuals can still register the morning of the race.

To be guaranteed a t-shirt, participants must be registered by Friday, May 17, 2019.

Following the Race for Kids is our Healthy Families Fun Fair that will take place inside the hospital from 10AM to 2PM. This event is free and will feature fun, kid friendly activities at every booth inspiring families to lead an active and healthy lifestyle
