Event Description

Help Arizona residents build a better and brighter future while they journey life with Spina Bifida!

Spina Bifida is the most common permanently disabling birth condition, yet the state of Arizona does not recognize it as a developmental disability after the age of six. These children experience lack of care continuity, often have as many as 30 surgeries by the age of 15, and are usually full time wheelchair users.

Heels 4 Wheels is raising funds to assist with programs and services to fill in the gaps in the current care model. Most babies born today with Spina Bifida will live well into adulthood and desire to achieve independence both financially and domestically.

Tie up your running shoes and be a part of making it happen in Arizona!


Children ages 5 and under in a stroller are free and no registration is required. If your children would like the race swag then you will need to register them
