Representatives of Vision Event Management, organizers of the annual Madison Mini Marathon, presented a check for $20,000 to the UW Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology (Ob-Gyn) on Thursday, October 17, 2013. The donation, which includes a portion of proceeds from this year’s race as well as contributions collected by title sponsor BMO Harris Bank, will benefit the department's Healthy Women Healthy Babies Fund, which supports programs for women and their families in the Madison area and promotes healthy lifestyles for women before, during, and after pregnancy. UW Ob-Gyn has partnered with the Madison Mini's during each of its five years of existence.

One program that benefits from the Healthy Women Healthy Babies fund is the department's annual Community Blanket and Diaper Drive, which collects donations of goods and money that help offset an expense that can overwhelm families with fewer resources. The department uses HWHB funds to augment donations, which were distributed this year to three local community organizations: Project Babies, Baby Depot, and the Wisconsin Women's Health Foundation.

Thank you for your support!

Your support of our Department through the Madison Mini-Marathon provides the resources necessary to continue to make educational community programs like the "Annual Blanket and Diaper Drive", "Family Affair Project" possible and promotes the "Healthy Women, Healthy Babies" mission of the department
