BALTIMORE (PRWEB) May 08, 2018
Shady Grove Fertility (SGF) and the Cade Foundation will host the annual Maryland Race for the Family on Saturday, June 16, 2018, at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, Maryland. SGF physicians, staff, and current and former patients will come together for this event to celebrate the strength and courage it takes to overcome infertility.
The event includes a 5k run/walk and a 1 mile Family Fun Run. “The Maryland Race for the Family is a wonderful opportunity for patients and staff to come together in support of the infertility community and help to raise funds for those who are in need of infertility treatment or adoption in order to build their families,” said Frank E. Chang, M.D., of Shady Grove Fertility’s Rockville, MD office.
Individuals as well as teams can register for the race. Registration includes complimentary zoo access, as well as the chance to win up to $10,000 in fertility treatment, provided by SGF.
The Tinina Q. Cade Foundation’s Family Building Grant is an annual award that provides up to $10,000 to an infertile family. This grant assists with either the costs associated with infertility treatment at SGF or domestic adoption. Another grant awarded at the Maryland Race for the Family is the Savannah Grant, which is only available to SGF patients undergoing IVF. Established in 2010, the Savannah Grant was created to provide up to $10,000 for an SGF patient pursuing IVF treatment. This grant is in honor of Savannah Caroline Pereira.
All proceeds from the event fund family building grants that help others afford the costs associated with fertility treatment or adoption. To date, there have been 92 grant recipients and 75 babies born.
