No Child Wet Behind Diaper Drive & 5K

This unique cross-country 5K has been hailed by runners as the best balance of challenging and fun of all the 5K courses they've ever run. There is also a one-mile kids fun run after the 5K! Backed by the national nonprofit "No Child Wet Behind," the funds and diapers raised for this race will be donated to the local Crittenton Centers to address the diaper need in our community that plagues 1 in 3 families and contributes heavily to maternal depression and child abuse.
