Nemours to Sponsor 6th Annual Hear We Go 5K and Family Fun Day
Run/Walk to raise awareness of hearing loss in children.
The 6th Annual “Hear We Go 5k” and Family Fun Day will be held Saturday, May 3rd, 2014. Registration begins at 12:00 p.m. at Nemours/Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children and the race starts at 1:00 p.m. The run will be held on the exquisite grounds of Nemours Mansion & Gardens, arguably the largest formal French garden in North America.
Hearing is a critical part of a child’s social, emotional, and cognitive development. The goal of the Hear We Go 5K run/walk 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 and improve the quality of life for these children and their families.
Proceeds benefit clinical and research programs related to pediatric hearing loss and hearing conservation at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children and Nemours Biomedical Research. To date, this event has raised close to $90,000.
Following the 5K race, participants are encouraged to stay for refreshments, activities and an education fair on the grounds of Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. Cost is $20/individual and $80/group of 5 for those who register before 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 1st and $25/individual and $100 group of 5 thereafter. Register as an individual or form a team.
