Our Annual Food & 5K Event for Fetal Health Foundation
Presented by Ethan Stowell Restaurants & Eastside Maternal Fetal Medicine
EAT. Join a handful of Seattle's best chefs in supporting Fetal Health. Enjoy a sampling of great local food from your favorite restaurants. Wine pairings and local microbrews will be available.
RUN. Join us for a festive 5K run/walk at Magnuson Park. Participants can enjoy this beautiful course at their own pace. A stroller division (for those with little ones) will be available. A free t-shirt, goodie bags, and family festival with face painting, kids games and much more.
HOPE. All proceeds benefit the Fetal Health Foundation, a 501(c)(3), national non-profit and the only one of its kind serving as a liaison between families whose babies are diagnosed with intrauterine fetal syndromes and the medical teams that provide their care. Since inception in 2006, Fetal Health has provided support and information through its online repository of fetal diagnostic information, as well as financially supporting more than 300 families through Travel Grants when immediate travel for lifesaving treatment has been necessary. Fetal Health focuses on providing parents with information to help them serve as the best advocates for their babies and their families. For more information, visit fetalhope.org.
Contact Angela Stowell for information about becoming a corporate sponsor for this year's event.
Last year’s event marked the launch of the Nathanael & Gabriel Stowell Memorial Research Grant, and $25,000 of the funds raised were awarded to Vidya Rajagopalan at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles to further study the impact of Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome on fetal brain development. This year, researchers will be invited again to apply for the grant to further their projects in the field of fetal health.
