It’s time to get up and get moving for a good cause.
The Pediatric Specialists of Virginia (PSV) are set to host its fifth annual Race to Make it All Better on Sept. 28, where local residents can participate in the 5K (3.1-mile) run and walk, the Tot Trot (for ages 3 and under) and the free Family Health Fair.
The event is the sole fundraiser for the local 501(c)(3), which was created as a children-focused medical group by the Children’s National Health System and Inova Health System. It has eight locations across the NoVA region and specializes in everything from allergy and immunology in children, to oculoplastics and orbital surgery.
According to the organization’s website, the 2018 event had over 500 registrants, 32 health fair booths and raised an all-time high of over $61,000 for the PSV. The 2019 goal is $75,000, which the organization hopes will be gathered from race revenue, community donations and event sponsorships.
Attendees are welcome to browse the health fair to find out more about local health companies and provided services, enter the raffle-ticket giveaways and enjoy the kid activities throughout the day, such as face painting, interactive games and live music from DJ Chris Styles.
Early-bird registration for adults is $35 through Aug. 31.
