Important Notice Regarding Road Use on Saturday, Nov. 17

The 4th Annual Jennifer Bush-Lawson 5K & Family Fun Day, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 17, 2018, will start and finish at the Knights of Columbus, 5115 Little Falls Road, and will wind through area neighborhoods. We are asking for the community’s support to help us with this event. In addition to raising funds for low-income and uninsured moms to get high-quality pre- and post-natal care at Virginia Hospital Center, we hope this 5K will provide an opportunity for the community to come together while participating in a healthy and fun activity.

If you are driving the morning of Saturday, November 17, 2018, please be aware that runners, walkers, volunteers and police will be on portions of the following roads:

The race begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at approximately 10:00 a.m., with different roads being used at different times. Little Falls Road between N. 32nd St and N. George Mason Drive will remain closed from 10:20am – 11:00am. Please refer to the course map for more detail. If you need to be somewhere on Saturday morning during the race and live near the Knights of Columbus, please allow extra time for a potential delay. You may also want to consider an alternate route if possible.

This is a community event, and proceeds from this charity event will help provide access to high-quality pre- and post-natal care for economically vulnerable expectant moms and their babies at Virginia Hospital Center. We ask for your patience with any inconvenience you may experience and for your feedback to help us make this annual event better each year. Furthermore, please support our runners, walkers and volunteers by using extreme caution on the roads that morning.

We invite you to come out on race morning to run, walk or cheer the runners on. They have been training hard for this race. They would appreciate your support and encouragement. During and after the race (9:00am to 1:00pm), a Family Fun Day featuring food trucks, moon bounces, obstacle courses, balloon animals, rock-climbing wall and more will be taking place at the Knights of Columbus. Please join us!
