Greetings to all our beloved Shelane's Run supporters,

Shelane's Run honors Shelane Gaydos, a mother of three girls who tragically ended her life while suffering severe postpartum depression. After her passing in June of 2015, friends and family established this annual event in Shelane's honor to memorialize her love and commitment to her family, community, and running. The run will be held virtually from October 21st - 29th, 2023, this year.

Proceeds from this event support Shelane's Fund -- a program that provides financial assistance to perinatal families suffering from postpartum depression and other mental health issues during pregnancy and postpartum.

Please join us from wherever you are to help spread awareness and raise money to help mothers and families in need. 

Forever grateful,
Shelane's Family & Friends
