JOIN US ON MAY 20, 2018!

Hearing is a critical part of every child's social, emotional and cognitive development. Our goal is to raise awareness about the importance of proper and timely diagnosis and management of hearing loss in children in order to facilitate their language development. Proceeds from the Hear We Go 5K and Family Fun Day 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.

The 10th Annual “Hear We Go” 5K and Family Fun Day takes place on May 20 throughout the beautifully blooming grounds of Nemours Estate, arguably the largest formal French garden in North America. The event concludes with refreshments and an educational fair for families and children on the grounds of Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children.

Registration, entertainment, refreshments and the educational fair will take place on the grounds of Nemours/ duPont Hospital for Children. The run/walk portion of the event will remain on the grounds of Nemours Estate. There is ample parking available in the hospital parking lots located through the main entrance.

This is a USATF Certified # DE10001WB and chipped timed race. Please note that parking is free, and no dogs or bikes are permitted. The mansion will not be open for tours. No rain date – rain delay will be considered.

In addition to medals for the top three male and female runners, there will also be awards for the top three highest fundraising teams. In order to be considered for the fundraising awards, all donations must be submitted no later than May 19, 2018 at noon.
