5K Angel Run 1 - Kennedys Angel Gowns


Annual 5K Angel Run

The 5K Angel Run has been our annual fundraiser since its inception in 2017. All proceeds go to the operation of our non-profit organization. The 5K Angel Run is a highly respected and well-attended event attracting over 300 participants. 

This special event aims to gather around the infant and pregnancy loss community. Family and friends register to run in honor of their infants (“angel babies”) lost too soon. Kennedy’s Angel Gowns shares all the babies’ names in unique ways and includes a special program for the families at the event. Your support and participation bring awareness during October for Infant & Pregnancy Loss Awareness Month.

We strive to stage a quality athletic event by continuing to improve our race each year. Many committed volunteers are actively involved in preparing for our race. We are so grateful for all of the “angels” who support our run by being participants, sponsors, volunteering time, offering services, or making in-kind or monetary donations.

5K Angel Run is a fundraising event for Kennedy’s Angel Gowns, a charitable, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization, dedicated to supporting and raising awareness of pregnancy and infant loss.

If walking or running a 5K is out of your scope of involvement, consider making a commitment to a recurring donation!

100% of your tax-deductible donation will go directly to Kennedy’s Angel Gowns as the 5K Angel Run itself is fully sustained by participants’ entry fees.
