To celebrate and raise awareness for Newborn Screening Awareness Month, we are hosting a virtual run/walk!
Participation is simple: Register, use the summer months to get yourself ready, and then in September, pick a place and time and run or walk your 5K!
All participants will receive a finisher’s medal, and if you share a picture of yourself from your 5k on one of our social media accounts, we’ll be sure to share and thank you!
If you are new to running, we recommend that you check out the Couch to 5k program. There you will find a 9 week program designed to take you from walking to running a 5k.
Don’t want to run, or can’t? That’s fine too! Walk, roll, or skip your 5k and still receive your medal!
Click here and submit your payment online via credit card or Paypal. BE SURE to include in the description of your donation that it is for the Virtual Run and the number of participants and their names and ages (if 24 years old or under).
To register by mail, print and fill out this form and mail to PO Box 42197, Cincinnati, Ohio 45242 and include a check or money order. Be sure your registration is received by the deadlines above!
As you train or practice, we’d love for you to share your photos with us on Facebook and Twitter! Use the hashtag #SaveBabies and help us celebrate Newborn Screening Awareness Month, raise awareness and continue to save babies, one foot at a time, one step at a time!
