Empty Arms Vermont 5K Run & Walk

Empty Arms Vermont 5K Run & Walk
Sat 08/19 10AM – 12PM


Join Empty Arms Vermont for a flat and scenic 5K race/walk starting and finishing at Oakledge Park in Burlington. This is a family-friendly event for both competitive runners and enthusiastic walkers. After the race, stick around to enjoy the park, Lake Champlain, food, yard games and time together. This 5K benefits the vision of Empty Arms Vermont, which is to foster a community of support, compassion and connection as families grieve pregnancy and infant loss.

Whether you have experienced pregnancy or infant loss, are a supportive family member or friend, a medical provider, or a compassionate community member -- we invite you to this special community event!

Participants of all ages and paces are welcome to run or walk in-person, or choose our virtual 5K option. Youth 18 and under will receive a discounted rate. Timing and registration services are provided by RunVermont.


Empty Arms Vermont is a non-profit organization offering resources and support to families across Vermont who have experienced miscarriage, stillbirth, termination for medical reasons, or infant loss.
