Join us October 13, 2018 for our 3rd Annual Shelane’s Run 5K/1K + Family Fun Day! This event was established by friends and family in honor of Shelane, whom tragically passed away in June of 2015. Unknown to family and friends, Shelane suffered from severe postpartum depression and psychosis following the loss of her fourth child. Our mission is to spread awareness, promote programs that offer postpartum support and resources, and encourage women and their families to reach out for help. Our goal is to establish and offer grants to families that may not be able to afford the treatment they truly need and deserve.
Shelane’s Run is the only road race in Virginia focused on maternal mental health. In 2017 nearly 500 people registered for Shelane’s Run and more than 1,000 family members participated in activities. We hope to continue growing in numbers and helping more families in our community.
