Join us this spring for Miles for Midwives taking place in historic Frederick. It starts off in beautiful Monocacy Village Park with all the amenities including a pavilion and playground, and after two loops on Schifferstadt Boulevard, proceeds through another section of the park, back onto road and finally returning you to the pavilion for the finish line bash. The course is mixed road and paved path. This is an incredible opportunity to welcome spring in and support a cause. All proceeds will be donated to Maryland Families for Safe Birth, a grassroots organization supporting licensure for Midwives in Maryland. The event includes post race festival complete with live music with The Dapper DJs (a local highlight), food and water.
