The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology partnered with the Madison Mini-Marathon & 5K because we care about the women of Wisconsin and their families. The Mini is a family event that can be enjoyed by everyone at any activity level. The Mini experience includes a half-marathon, 5K and age-tiered Kid’s Run. There are also a variety of volunteer opportunities for those who are less competitive. Most of all, the Mini demonstrates a community coming together and having fun while engaged in healthy activities.
As a charity partner of the Mini, the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology Healthy Women, Healthy Babies Fund receives a share of the proceeds earned from the race. Your participation helps further the department’s mission to improve the health of women and their families. You can join the competition or volunteer your time at the race.
