Dressing up is not requirement but a fun twist. We will be taking pictures in the pavillion for you to share with your friends! You can still run even if you do not want to dress up!

We do this by providing prenatal health education through in home case management and group support sessions to our community's most at risk pregnant women. We are also asking for a donation of diapers or wipes with the registration fee.
