COMPto5K for a Cause: Supporting GBMC's NICU

11:34 AM

You've been training for months, venturing outside in the snow, rain and humidity to walk, run or a combination of the two. You've taken the stairs, set your alarm clock on Saturdays and purchased running gear you never imagined owning. You've found community in Team COMPto5K. You've cheered your friends across the finish line, Saturday after Saturday. You've broken out of your comfort zone. You've done all of this for you: for your health, your well-being and your confidence. And you've absolutely crushed it!

On Sunday, June 19, you'll hit the pavement for a different cause: to support babies in GBMC's NICU.

The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) team at GBMC cares for more than 400 premature infants and sick newborns each year. The NICU's 12 patient rooms are always in need of equipment and technology updates, to ensure it has the newest critical resources for the most fragile babies, who require round-the-clock care. Proceeds from the 5K help to provide resources for the NICU to make significant enhancements, so it can continue to provide top quality care for the tiniest patients at GBMC.

If you haven't yet paid to participate in the race, click here to register for GBMC's 28th annual Father's Day 5K. (If you paid when you pledged back in December or January, no further action is needed.)

COMPto5K participants received a discounted race registration. If you would like to make an additional contribution to the NICU, please visit the fundraising page. We encourage you to share this link with your families and friends who have supported you along the way!

We can't wait to cross the finish line with you on June 19!
