Hope for Henry Mother's Day 5K to Make a Kid's Day

The Annual Mother's Day Hope for Henry 5K to Make a Kid's Day, taking place at Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda, Maryland, attracts 400+ runners/walkers. This 5K USATF certified course is chip-timed. All participants will receive medals. Category winners will receive awards. We also offer a 1-Mile Fun Run on the school track. In addition to the Race we will have a Kids Zone featuring family-friendly activities including inflatable bouncy houses, face painters, balloon maker, and arts and crafts activities.

The 2017 5K Run/Walk will raise necessary funds for Hope for Henry to continue its great work reinventing how hospitals care for seriously ill children and their families through innovative programs that entertain, reduce stress, and empower children to be active participants in their own care. Serving DC and Maryland's sickest kids, we need your help today. By sponsoring Hope for Henry’s 5K to Make a Kid’s Day, you will make life better for the sickest children in DC and Baltimore.

Race day registration fee will be $45.00
