I can and I will is the mantra Olivia and her mom, Alisa, have been saying since 2018. Whether it's prepping to be poked by a needle or running up a big hill, we remind ourselves that we can and we will! We take these words to heart and they have been pushing us to do big things!

Our goal this year is to raise money for the Uncompensated Care Fund at Seattle Children's Hospital. Race day is Sunday, October 15th, 2023. The run offers kids dashes, a professionally timed 5k and a 10k, as well as a virtual run for our friends and fans who are not able to travel to Seattle. The start will be at Green Lake Community Center using both the inner trail, and surrounding parks for the 10k, finishing back at the start. The kids' runs will be held near the starting line after the other races are completed. We will have t-shirts for those registering early as long as supplies last as well as finisher medals!

We created this event to help Seattle Children's Hospital provide world class care to patients regardless of their ability to pay. Everyday a family walks into Seattle Children's Hospital and learns something that will forever change them. No parent should have to deal with a difficult diagnosis for their child and face financial hardship when seeking care for their child. 

Every step you take will make a difference in the lives of families who are impacted by a devastating diagnosis and wondering how they will pay the medical bills. 100% of race net proceeds from this fun run will benefit uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Thank you for your participation and help. You are ensuring that families can focus on their child's wellbeing; not the medical bill in their mailbox.
