Rockville, MD (PRWEB) September 9, 2010
For the second straight year, Shady Grove Fertility Center is donating free fertility treatment (up to $10,000, certain exceptions may apply) to be given away at the annual Race for the Family 5K and 1-mile Fun Walk on Sunday, September 26, at 8:30 a.m. in Rockville, MD. People from across the U.S. are eligible to enter the raffle by donating a minimum of $25 to the Cade Foundation or registering to race or walk at http://www.RaceForTheFamily.com. The award can be redeemed for basic infertility treatment, In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or Donor Egg treatment at Shady Grove Fertility.
All proceeds raised will benefit Shady Grove Fertility’s partner, Cade Foundation, a national non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to would-be parents. Through its annual Family Building Grant, the Cade Foundation provides couples struggling with infertility monetary gifts of up to $10,000 to help pay for infertility treatment or domestic adoption.
“We are delighted to work together with the Cade Foundation to help more couples in our area and beyond fulfill their dream of starting a family,” said Frank Chang, M.D., a Shady Grove Fertility Center board-certified reproductive endocrinologist and Cade Foundation board member.
In 2009, through the generosity of participants, sponsors and donors, Race for the Family raised over $60,000 which helped to fund family building options for six couples. “We feel that cost should never be an issue that prevents a couple who is able to love and care for a child from having that chance,” said Cade Foundation Founder Camille Hammond. “Shady Grove Fertility has been a wonderful partner and share the same vision to assist couples build their families.
This race is presented by Shady Grove Fertility with additional support from many sponsors including our Platinum Sponsor Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker LLP.
