Description

The Children's Miracle Network is proud to present the annual I AM WOMAN 5k. Due to COVID 19 guidelines and concerns this year's event will be virtual. Participation can take place on the 5k (3.1 mile) course of your choice. Each FINISHER will receive a unique, custom finisher medal AND a face mask with the logo of the event. Traditionally, this has been a "female only" event. In the spirit of community and supporting the Children's Miracle Network, we are encouraging the entire family to participate. "Yes", this means that men and women, boys and girls, are encouraged to signup!

MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY PARTICIPATING
The I Am Woman 5K is working with the Centra Foundation and the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to raise funds for a High Frequency Jet Ventilator (HFJV), a ventilator that provides ventilation pressures and oxygen levels that are safer for the neonate's lung needs and has been shown to improve outcomes in newborns with respiratory distress. Currently, babies born prematurely at 23-26 weeks in our service region must be transported to UVA’s hospital.  A jet ventilator in the NICU at VBH would allow approximately 50 infants and mothers to stay closer to home annually. Your participation will help make this need a reality!
