Shelane's Run

Shelane's Run 2021 Donation Form

Shelane’s Run honors Shelane Gaydos, a mother of three girls who tragically ended her life while in the grips of severe postpartum depression. After the tragic passing of Shelane in June 2015, friends and family established this annual event in her honor to memorialize Shelane’s love and commitment to her family, community and running.

Now, more than ever, we want new moms who are dealing with the stress of COVID-19 and the additional anxiety of postpartum depression (PPD,) to know we are here to help and provide support. Every runner, every walker, every sponsor and supporter gives us the chance to make a significant change in the life of a deserving mother and their family. Our goal is to raise enough funds to provide $25,000 in grants for women that fund mental health care, childcare, or other needs.
