The 2021 Franciscan Health Race for Kids will be an in-person event.

The race is aimed at raising awareness and funds for our Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and our Pediatric Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy departments. All proceeds will help purchase equipment and supplies needed to provide a continuum of care for our tiny babies in the NICU to our children with developmental delays who work hard each week in their therapy appointments. At Franciscan Health, we want to enhance a child’s ability to learn, improve their physical function, and support their need for independence.

This year's activities will include a:

5K Run/Walk (in-person or virtual)
Kid's Dash, a non-competitive 50-yard dash free to children of all ages and abilities
NEW! Butterfly Release allowing families to honor and remember a lost baby or child
New! Team Fundraising to set a goal, make a personal donation and ask others to support you.
