Be among the first to register for the 2015 Race for Every Child
. Our event website is up and running. The third annual 5k run/walk and Kids’ Dash will take place on Saturday, Oct. 3, at Freedom Plaza in downtown Washington, DC. The Race for Every Child is one of the largest community events focused on children’s health in the Washington region and helps ensure that every child treated at Children’s National can receive the same level of world-class service and expert care. “Children’s National is always here for our community,” said Race Director Ashley Husich. “The Race for Every Child is an opportunity for our region to rally around children, have fun, and make a difference.”Proceeds from the event will help fund specialized medical care, the development of innovative treatments for childhood diseases, and important wellness and preventive services to keep children healthy. Last year, nearly 4,700 people from 27 states, the District of Columbia, and four countries laced up for the race and raised more than $1 million. This year's goal is $1.2 million.This year’s Race is co-chaired by Casey and Nick Seidenberg, whose daughter Pippa continues to receive treatment at Children’s National. “There’s nothing that compares to the feeling of crossing the finish line at the Race for Every Child,” Casey Seidenberg said. “It’s a time to celebrate, express gratitude, and have fun. But we know the finish line is just the beginning. Together, as a community we can do more. We can give more children the chance for a healthy life. That’s what the Race is all about.”Registration is now open at raceforeverychild.org
