Description: Please join us for the Inaugural family-friendly 5k run, walk and roll for CMV awareness. Congenital Cytomegalovirus, or CMV, is the most common viral infection, occurring in about 1 in 200 births, and the leading non-genetic cause of hearing loss that infants are born within the US. Every pregnant woman is at risk of acquiring CMV, and only 9% of women know about it! 100% of the event proceeds will be allocated to the National CMV Foundation’s efforts to promoting awareness, providing access to resources and sharing prevention information to eliminate congenital CMV!
