Virtual Event, October 23 - 31, 2021

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 in the grips of severe postpartum depression. After her 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. This year, the run will be held virtually from October 23rd - 31st, 2021.

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

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
