More than 400 runners, walkers and toddler trotters have registered to date, along with 70 volunteers. All monies raised will benefit the Cade Foundation, the only national non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to would-be parents. Through its Family Building Grant program, the Cade Foundation provides infertility couples monetary gifts of up to $10,000 to help pay for infertility treatment or domestic adoption.

At the finish line, Shady Grove Fertility Center will raffle a free in vitro fertilization cycle (IVF) to one race participant or donor. In addition to the 5K race, there will be a fun walk, toddler trot and sidewalk arts festival. Events start and finish at Shady Grove Fertility Center headquarters, 15001 Shady Grove Road, Rockville, Md. 20850, and the course winds through nearby Fallsgrove Village Center. Register to run, walk or donate at www.RaceForTheFamily.com/.

Additional mechanisms Shady Grove Fertility Center has established to make fertility more affordable include financing options such as Shared Risk, which covers up to six IVF treatment cycles and guarantees a 100-percent refund if a baby is not delivered, and Shared Help, which offers financial assistance to income-eligible patients.
