I Can And I Will Reschedule This Run!!!

New Date: Sunday Oct 18th, 2020

A few weeks ago I was planning this inaugural race and eagerly anticipating seeing our registration number inch to 500, then a week later, I was debating on delaying the race due to rumors that this Coronavirus crisis. Then, moments after I decided to delay the race, Gov. Inslee made the mandate that no events over 500 people would be allowed to happen. The I Can And I Will Run had just reached 515 runners registered. 

News continues to come at us and new regulations are in place strictly prohibiting any unnecessary outings to help "flatten the curve". We saw the limits of gatherings go from 500 to 250 to 50 and now 10. Stay home and stay safe, whether it's for your own health, or the health of your community. We are all in this together. And, given that our cause is to help children and their families cope with uncompensated care, as much as we would love to have this run on Sunday 3.29.20, it's just not happening. For now.

We were very fortunate to get a new date with the Seattle Parks and Recs. Dept. and we are slated for 10.18.20 which gives us time to get our race registration numbers up to 1000 people! It was with a heavy heart that I decided to delay the race, but as friends pointed out to me, it doesn't matter the time of the year or the route or the location, it is the cause that makes people really come together. Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of this effort. I know we are putting together something great. I hope you can join us on October 18th. Until then, please stay safe and stay healthy. 

With gratitude, 

Alisa Vitello

I can. And, I will. 

It's this positive mantra that inspires Seattle Children's patient Olivia Vitello every day. Sign up to run the inaugural race dedicated to Liv's unwavering spirit and help raise money for uncompensated care at Seattle Children's to ensure that families in our area can focus on their child's wellbeing, not the medical bill in their mailbox. 

The I Can And I Will Run will start and finish near the Green Lake Community Center and the baseball fields. This 3.1 mile course utilizes a section of the inner path of the trail as well as the roads around Green Lake. The 10K route will include Lower Woodland Park and the streets circling the Woodland Park Zoo and then reconnect with the 5K course.

  • Packet pick up will be available at Super Jock n' Jill Saturday 10/17 and the morning of the race
  • 10K begins at 9am
  • 5K begins at 9:30am
  • Kids 200 Meter Dash begins at 10:30
  • Kids 100 Meter Dash begins at 10:40
  • Awards Ceremony will take place approximately 10:15 before the kids dash

100% of race net proceeds from this fun run will benefit uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s Hospital, which provides medical care to children in our region regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
