From the website:
The Cade Foundation's Maryland Race for the Family, hosted by Shady Grove Fertility, is our 5k run/walk that celebrates the strength and courage it takes to OVERCOME infertility. All proceeds from the event fund Family Building Grants that help others afford the costs associated with fertility treatment or adoption.
What is it? This is a 5k or 1-mile event where you can walk or run along with the community (at the Baltimore Inner Harbor) or alone/ with a small group virtual race to raise awareness about infertility and to provide support to families with infertility. We celebrate ALL pathways to parenthood and want all families to feel welcomed and supported. Join us as we celebrate and spread the message that infertility can be OVERCOME!
How do we participate? The event will be HYBRID (in person and virtual). The in person event will be at the Baltimore Inner Harbor at the Rash Field (next to the MD Science Center) from 8am-11am. For the virtual attendees- we just ask that you move either 5k (3.2 miles) or 1 mile AND that you share how and where and how long it took for you to complete your Race for the Family. If you register for the SUMMER race (6/11) you're automatically registered for the VIRTUAL Fall event (10/8) and FertiliFest.
FertiliFest(TM)- We will host an in person FertiliFest (family building festival) on race day for the FALL event (10/8/22) at the Owings Mills Metro Center (15 minutes outside of Baltimore MD) in the courtyard in front of the library. Join us to connect with local resources and vendors who support families with infertility. We will have a DJ- games- tons of giveaways from local businesses and will announce the winner of the $10,000 raffle from Shady Grove Fertility. Local orgs that support families with infertility will be at the event to share info and support.
Where? We will have both IN PERSON and VIRTUAL registration options.
