Shady Grove Fertility and the Cade Foundation will host the 10th Annual Maryland Race for the Family on Saturday, June 13, 2015. The Tinina Q. Cade Foundation is a non-profit organization that serves the needs of families battling infertility through education, outreach, and grants that help couples pay for infertility treatment or domestic adoption. In the past decade, through events like the Race for the Family, Shady Grove Fertility and the Cade Foundation have raised over $600,000 that will be used to raise awareness and to support the local community.
The 2015 Maryland Race for the Family will be held—for the first time ever—at The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, Maryland. Shady Grove Fertility physicians, staff, and current and former patients will join together at this event to celebrate and spread the message that infertility can be overcome. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a 5k run, a 5k walk, and a 1 mile Family Fun Run. Shady Grove Fertility physicians will also participate in the highly-anticipated Physician Tricycle Race.
“The Maryland Race for the Family is a great opportunity to come together with patients and staff to support the infertility community and raise funds to help families in need,” said Frank E. Chang, M.D., of Shady Grove Fertility’s Rockville, MD, office.
Early registration is currently available for the Race for individuals and teams. Registration includes complimentary zoo access, as well as access to the raffle to win $10,000 that will go towards fertility treatment, provided by Shady Grove Fertility. Registrants are encouraged to participate in fundraising initiatives to give back to the community.
