In previous years the 5K has raised over $20,000, and we couldn't do this without your help and participation in raising funds! All money raised goes directly back into the services provided by the GW Healing Clinic. Help us reach our goals for this school year of: $25,000

Your Contributions will help:

  • To Provide more holistic patient services at our both our sites, Bridge to Care in PG County Maryland and Bread for the City in the Shaw neighborhood.
  • To Increase our community presence and health outreach by collaborating with a spectrum of community, academic, and institutional partners.
  • To Train our volunteers as future physicians who are best prepared to advocate for the health needs of underserved patients in a constantly evolving health system.
