Welcome and thank you for your interest in Running for Covers!

Running for Covers is a 2.8 mile fun run/walk for which the “cost” of participating is a donation of a new, handmade, or gently used baby blanket. The 8th annual Running for Covers Event will take place at the Grandville Middle School Track, on Sunday August 16, 2020. In its inaugural year, 50 people participated to collect approximately 200 blankets. Last year, more than 300 people gathered to donate over 400 blankets and hundreds of other needed items to the NICU at Mercy Health Saint Mary’s Hospital. Due to our fundraising efforts in 2020, we were also able to donate $4,000 to help the NICU purchase two hospital-grade specialized power reclining chairs that allow new parents to experience skin-to-skin time with their infant on an oscillator ventilator as well as bed side milk warmers.
