About this Event

The Race for Every Child is a 5K Run/Walk benefiting Children's National Health System. The Race promotes children’s health and the benefits of exercise for children and families. Participants, sponsors, and partners will have a chance to meet Children’s National staff and run or walk alongside children who are thriving after being treated at Children's National.

Through registration fees and their own fundraising efforts, teams and participants will raise much needed funds to provide world-class care for every child in our region who comes to Children's National with a medical need.

Every child, every family and every community member has a stake in the success of this race – we appreciate your energy and support!
