5K for Families

A local organization aims to buy diapers for babies in need through a 5K fundraiser.

Columbus Birth & Parenting, a local doula agency, is holding the second No Child Wet Behind 5K and Diaper Drive from 10 a.m. to noon May 13 at Wolfe Park, 105 Park Drive, Columbus.

The event includes a 1-mile family run/walk, a timed 5K and a free kids fun run. Advance registration is $35; same-day registration is $40. Proceeds will go to the nonprofit No Child Wet Behind and the Columbus Diaper Bank, which provides diapers to families who cannot afford them.

Last year’s event generated 30,000 donated diapers. This year’s goal is 100,000.
