Sign Up for WakeMed Scrub Run

As we continue to celebrate WakeMed’s 50th year of service to the community, you are invited to participate in the first-ever WakeMed Scrub Run & Fun Fest, to be held on Saturday, October 1, in Moore Square, downtown Raleigh.  Proceeds will benefit WakeMed Children’s through the WakeMed Foundation.

Featuring competitive 5K and 10K races that accommodate both runners and walkers, a 100-Yard Dash for kids and much more, this event is designed to get the entire community involved!  After the races, WakeMed and our community partners will keep the celebration going with a Fun Fest event from 9 am to 2 pm in Moore Square.  Racers, families, friends and all members of the community will enjoy a variety of games and activities, as well as live music and entertainment, face painting, arts & crafts, and mascots, including Twinkle of WakeMed Children’s. 

All employees are encouraged to participate and show support for WakeMed by running in the 5K/10K, heading downtown for the Fun Fest – or both!  Learn more by reading the event brochure.
