"Hear We Go" 5K & Family Fun Day

Saturday, May 3, 2014

Join us for the Sixth Annual "Hear We Go" 5K Run/Walk and Family Fun Day.

Hearing is a critical part of every child's social, emotional and cognitive development. Your participation will benefit programs and services at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, related to hearing loss and hearing conservation in children in our community.

The "Hear We Go" 5K will take place on the exquisite grounds of Nemours Mansion and Gardens — arguably the largest and most beautiful formal French garden in North America. The event concludes with fun family activities, live entertainment, refreshments and an educational fair.
