Why We Run

We’re welcoming back Virginia Hospital Center as a beneficiary of the Jennifer Bush-Lawson 5K & Family Fun Day, and proceeds from the race will support economically vulnerable pregnant women who receive services at VHC’s Outpatient Clinic. 

Last year, our charity event raised funds to support a two-year telemedicine pilot program at Virginia Hospital Center’s Outpatient Clinic that is removing barriers to care; subsidize transportation for low-income mothers so that they don’t miss critical prenatal appointments; and provide new pack-and-plays to families in need so their newborns have a safe place to sleep. Your generosity truly makes a difference in our community!
