Charity Partner - Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology

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.

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology created The Healthy Women, Healthy Babies Fund to actively work with women of all ages to communicate the importance of a healthy lifestyle. By providing education and resources to women, we hope to develop strong, healthy families.

The Healthy Women Healty Babies Fund supports the UW Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology’s work in compassionate patient care, public service and community outreach. With help from the Healthy Women Healthy Babies fund, the department presents free community lectures, manages a Madison Centering Pregnancy program and engages in cutting-edge research on maternal-fetal health.
