About This Activity

New Mexico Doulas and Burt Broadcasting, Inc is proud to present the first annual No Child Wet Behind Diaper Drive, 5K Race and 1 mile Family Fun Run/Walk. The Race will take place on Saturday, May 21, 2016 in Alamogordo, New Mexico. 

The run departs & ends at Griggs Sports Complex and starts with a challenging hill heading east on Fairgrounds Road to Scenic Drive. It then travels south on Scenic Drive past Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center. Scenic drive is a hilly terrain that offers expansive views of White Sands National Monument and the beautiful Sacramento Mountains. The 5K travels to NMSU-A then loops back to Griggs Sports Complex. It is a challenging and beautiful run.  The 1-mile Family Fun Run/Walk will occur primarily on Griggs Sports Complex property.

Participants are encouraged to wear their cotton blend race day shirts (Shirt size is gauranteed with registration by April 18th) to show their support for the cause. The 5K & Family Fun Run event includes 94.3 KEY playing current hits, a Vendor Showcase Expo featuring local businesses, a Family Fun Area with bouncy castles by Sertoma, face-painting and balloon animals, and local Food Trucks including  Café Con Leche and Rosie's Consessions.

Proceeds from the event will benefit The Pregnancy Help Center to support its mission of information, education and support. The event is preceded with an area Diaper Drive starting April 15th which concludes on Race Day with a celebration and announcement of total diapers collected.

About No Child Wet Behind

No Child Wet Behind is a 501c3 dedicated to awareness, education and the donation of diapers to needy families with infants and small children.

When a family struggles to, or is not able to provide diapers for their child, the family is affected both physically and emotionally.

Programs exist to assist families with basic necessities such as food, shelter and clothing, but surprisingly, diaper need is not supported by any government program.

No Child Wet Behind began as a local diaper drive and fundraiser with a 5k run when owners of Northeast Doulas, a New York based Doula agency learned of the struggle needy families were having keeping their babies clean and dry. 

Starting in 2016 No Child Wet Behind events will occur around the United States in support of this important cause and to benefit local charities in need of diapers.
