I Am Woman 5K Run & Walk

Hosted by Centra Women & Children's Services, this annual all-female run and walk raises funds for pediatric care at Centra, ensuring local families and their children can receive care close to home. For more information please contact jackie.weaver@centrahealth.com or 434.20.4630.

The 15th annual I Am Woman 5K's mission is to promote fitness, bring the community together and improve the lives of families in Central Virginia! The in-person race will be held on Saturday, October 29. A virtual offering is available the weekend of October 28-30.

The I Am Woman 5K race works with the Centra Foundation to raise funds for parents and children in our community, to ensure we can partner with our families to live their best lives. Funds raised have helped ensure specialized newborn and pediatric equipment such as fetal monitors, radiant Panda warmers, and Omni beds for the Intensive Care Nursery, are available. This equipment allows us to keep children in our community and close to family and loved ones while they receive care. To become a race sponsor, visit www.CentraFoundation.com/Events.
