Delaware Valley Area Races

Nemours has recently become a charity partner with several races across the Delaware Valley as well as runDisney! Opportunities include the chance to sign up for these races as part of the #RunNemours team to raise awareness and funds for different Nemours programs and services. For some races, participants will receive guaranteed race entry and other incentives for achieving a fundraising goal. Volunteer opportunities are also available for select races.

For Nemours Associates, this is also a great opportunity to earn Health and Wellness points towards YOUR Health for a Community Benefit Event – and these events directly support Nemours! Please continue to check back on this page for more races and updates. For more information, please contact
Sue DeNardo.
