ABOUT US AND OUR MISSION

Thank you for visiting our race website. We appreciate your interest and support for the 2025 Run for the Cherubs 5K benefitting Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies and Hosted by Graham J. Cowan Foundation.  With your help, to date, we have raised and gifted $27,575 to Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies in Graham's memory.

Our Why
We created this foundation in 2019, three years after we lost Graham. It took that long to get to a place where we could attempt our vision. Our mission is still the same since that day, and that is to honor Graham’s name, and create a legacy in his memory that will have an impact for a lifetime. His life may have been cut short, but his tiny footprints can still make a mark in this world. Learn more about Graham’s Story.

Our Purpose
To share our story with others near and far who have experienced the loss of a child at any age. We want families to know that they do not have to face this alone. Our goal is to come together as a community to raise funds for Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies towards continued research and to provide support to bereaved families just starting this journey, and to let those at any stage of their journey know they are not alone. 

100% of Race proceeds from the Run for the Cherubs 5K will benefit Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies. 👣 Your race registration is your donation. Any additional donation made in honor of someone, or a general donation also benefits Winnie Palmer Hospital.
Our event is uplifting, and focused on hope, and strength, while honoring all the tiny footprints by running or walking for those that will never get the chance to. The 3rd Annual Run for the Cherubs 5K & Walk benefitting Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies is professionally chip timed with live online results. Runners, walkers, strollers welcome. 


The Graham J. Cowan Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, IRS EIN# 84-4339323.

The Run for the Cherubs 5K is now a USATF Certified Course 👟
