The 2019 Maryland Race for the Family hosted by Shady Grove Fertility Center at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore- 6/8/19.

The Cade Foundation’s Maryland Race for the Family, hosted by Shady Grove Fertility, is our 5k run/walk that celebrates the strength and courage it takes to OVERCOME infertility. All proceeds from the event fund Family Building Grants that help others afford the costs associated with fertility treatment or adoption.


participants will receive complimentary access to the zoo following the race


Race Gear :-) Everyone gets a medal and zoo admission for the day…

Run with the animals (or walk..no judgement) along a beautiful 5k course that will take you throughout the Baltimore Zoo and around the scenic lake at Druid Hill Park. This year’s race will feature a 5k run, 5k walk, 1.5 mile Family Fun Run, and Savannah’s Playground. Each adult race registration will receive complimentary access to the zoo, an official 2019 MD Race for the Family tech t-shirt, a virtual race “swag bag”, and 1 entry into the free IVF cycle drawing provided by Shady Grove Fertility (conducted 6/10/19 at noon via LIVESTREAM.) We will also hold one live drawing following the race for a second raffle prize- one stimulation cycle of medications provided by EMD Serono. Additional zoo passes can be purchased by anyone who registers for the 5k or 1.5-mile event and wants to bring family, friends, or supporters. Join us as we celebrate and spread the message that infertility can be OVERCOME!

Fundraise for even more chances to win this year’s free cycle drawing (up to a $10,000 value.)  For every $45 raised through our 2019 Maryland Race for the Family Razoo Team Page you will receive 1 additional raffle entry. This is a great way to get your family and friends involved. Vist https://www.razoo.com/team/19raceforthefamily for more information.
