About This Activity

Run or walk a 10K or 5K! Participate competitively or just for fun! Everyone is welcome, so bring the family and enjoy a day at the park with your local community!

Do It For Delaney is a community event for runners, walkers, families and friends to help special needs children. Do It For Delaney was originally created to raise funds for uncovered therapy costs for Delaney Thomas. Delaney was born with an extremely rare genetic CASK gene duplication resulting in microcephaly and cerebral palsy. Due to the community’s overwhelming support, Do It For Delaney has turned into a much larger event helping special needs children and their families.

We are excited to announce that Conductiva, a conductive education learning program, Family Resource Network, a Bay Area resource for special needs families, and The Parker Lee Project, supporting medically dependent children will benefit from Do It For Delaney 2014.

All participants can receive a copy of the course map on race day.

Volunteers will also be on the course at key locations to help direct runners.


Water and aid stations will be located at the start/finish of the race and approximately 1.5 miles into the 5K course. An additional water/aid station will be located at the turn around for the 10K. Should medical assistance be needed along the course, volunteers will be able to contact the Race Officials to attain medical aid. Runners who may need more water, should carry their own water bottle or hydration pack.


Bathrooms will be available at the race start/finish area. There are also two bathroom locations on the course.
