About This Activity

A fun day for the whole family, while supporting a non-profit and local families in need.

Our Portland community will join with events in 22 other states, on May 21, 2016 to bring awareness to an important issue effecting families locally. Diapers will be donated to The Opportunity Alliance and will be distributed to families in need in Southern Maine.
Did you know....
- 1 in 3 families report a need for diapers.
- On average an adequate supply of diapers cost more than $100 a month, over $3,600 to diaper just one child for three years.
- There is no government funded program that provides diapers to families in need.
Help us fill a need in our community by supporting No Child Wet Behind. You can make a difference!

The 5k will kick off the events at 8am, followed by a 1 mile family fun run, and a stroller parade at 9am. Medals for top finishers in the 5k and 1 mile. Prizes for the best decorated stroller.

Bring a case of diapers for a chance to win a raffle prize!

Vendors, music and activities for all ages.

Parking is available in the Back Cove lot. Strollers are permitted, and encouraged for the stroller parade! Please leave your pets at home.
