Activities: Running race, Walking only, 5K, 1 Mile

Run with the Docs is back! The 2022 race will be live, barring COVID complications that force us to postpone or cancel. Run with the Docs is a 5k run and 1 mile walk that will be held on Saturday, September 17, 2022 at Virtua Voorhees Hospital in Voorhees, NJ. 

We will organize a packet pickup (dates TBA) for teeshirts and bibs. Back by popular demand, canine participants will receive a bandana. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 runners in each age group!

Run with the Docs benefits Virtua’s Perinatal Bereavement and Palliative Care Program, which provides support and care to families experiencing pregnancy or infant loss. The program helps to ensure that families who experience loss have access to a multidisciplinary range of services that provide comfort and support during a very difficult time. Thanks to the generous Run with the Docs participants, sponsors, and donors, the Perinatal Bereavement and Palliative Care Program:

 

·         Provides education to our OB physicians and practitioners on compassionate communication when delivering bad news

·         Offers a financial assistance program to help ease the burden of funeral or burial costs

·         Purchases books on grief for parents and children

·         Supports the purchases of cooling beds, which allow parents to spend precious time with their baby

·         Presents our biennial Perinatal Bereavement and Palliative Care conference, which provides education to healthcare workers in the US and Canada

·         Partners with Today Is A Good Day to provide support to our NICU families

·         Assists families with the purchase of a plaque in memory of their little one in our Angel Garden

·         Serves as a resource for all families in our entire region, whether they are patients at Virtua or another health care system

PLEASE NOTE: Run with the Docs takes place rain or shine, with the exception of dangerous conditions including but not limited to lightning or anything that would make the course unsafe for participants. Your safety is our top priority. If Run with the Docs cannot take place on the scheduled date due to unsafe conditions, we will make every effort to give participants as much notice as possible, but cannot guarantee that the race will not be “called” on-site the morning of race day. In the event of a called race, we reserve the right to either reschedule or fully cancel the event without rescheduling. Run with the Docs has a “no refunds” policy that we are grateful to say reflects the wishes of hundreds of race participants over the years, who feel confident knowing that their registration fees support families in need.
