As part of our commitment to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the 13th Annual "Hear We Go!" 5K & Family Fun Day will remain a virtual event.  But the importance of our mission remains the same!

Our highest priority at Nemours is to ensure the health and safety of our children, families, associates, and community. For this reason, we made the decision to host this year's "Hear We Go!" 5K once again in a virtual format. Although we are disappointed that "Hear We Go!" 5K cannot take place in person, we are excited to help our families stay active and continue to help our kids affected by hearing loss.

You can participate by registering to run or walk, setting up a fundraising team, or simply making a tax-deductible donation to a special team or runner. As in past years, we will be giving awards to the top-fundraising team, as well as top individual fundraiser. We'll also be giving a ton of incentive prizes out between now and April. So make sure to register, recruit your team, and let’s see what we can do together in support of our kids!

As a partner in the community and a leader in children’s healthcare, Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children is committed to ensuring that our patients are given the highest level of care and the opportunity to live healthy lives. Your support will enable us to keep moving forward, even in the most challenging of times. 

Proceeds from the Hear We Go Event will benefit our clinical and research programs at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children related to hearing loss and hearing conservation in children in our community.

Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts. 


Date: Your choice! Pick any day between April 1 and April 25, 2021. You may register now though, and start your fundraising anytime.

Place: Anywhere that's convenient for you. Your neighborhood, a park, or even a school track.  Watch for more information about special pop-up sites where you can pick up your tshirts in a socially distant way! And remember, anyone can join your team - even if they live in California! That's the beauty of a virtual event!

Registration fee: $25 (registration is not required for children age 3 and under)

Registration deadline: If you want to receive a t-shirt, please register by March 1st.  Others may continue to register up to the final day of the race (April 25, 2021). 

Amenities: All participants registered by March 1, 2021 will receive a  "Hear We Go!" 5K short-sleeved t-shirt.  Shirts will be available for pick-up only. Stay tuned for more information about pick-up dates and times. 

You will also have the option, when registering, to select "No T-Shirt" so that more of the proceeds may be used directly toward the mission.
