Bring your family to beautiful Champoeg State Park for a morning of fun and fitness to celebrate midwives! This is a 5K fun run/walk on a well-paved path that is open to adults, kids, strollers, dogs, anyone! This event aims to bring together those that support quality healthcare for women, families, and communities!
Proceeds from this year’s fundraiser will benefit services supported by the Oregon Affiliate of the American College of Nurse Midwives, including scholarships, education for midwives, legislative action that supports midwifery and access to healthcare for Oregon women and their families. Additionally, 10% of registration proceeds will be donated to the Baby Blues Connection which supports women's mental health care during pregnancy and postpartum.
We are also hosting a diaper drive to benefit the families served by Nurse-Family Partnership. Please bring a pack of diapers of any size to the race and they will be distributed to NFP locations throughout the state.
The course is an out-and-back on a well paved, mostly flat multi-use path. It’s simple: you run to the 5K station and turn around. Strollers and dogs will be welcomed on the course! We will provide informal and unofficial finish times for those interested.
Individuals and groups are welcome to organize a theme, costume, or team color that unifies your team or a cause! Many people who plan to attend the event hope to share their pride in supporting midwifery and women's health… join with them if you would like!
