Taking Steps to Cure Infant Prematurity: Delaware Center for Maternal and Fetal Medicine Sponsors Second Annual Race for Time


Wilmington, DE, June 13, 2008—The Delaware Center for Maternal and Fetal Medicine of Christiana Care is sponsoring the second annual Race for Time 5k Run/Walk on Saturday, June 28, 2008, at the Wilmington Riverfront. The event will raise money to support the care of premature babies in Delaware.

Every year, more than half a million infants in the United States are born prematurely. Some don’t survive, while others suffer birth defects and lifelong health problems. Tragically, the rate of premature births is rising worldwide, with no known cause.

The Race for Time is your chance to help find a cure for this growing crisis. All proceeds from the race will benefit the Prematurity Clinic of Christiana Care, which is one of the nation’s top providers of obstetric services.

Walkers and runners will gather at Joe’s Crab Shack on the scenic Wilmington Riverfront, 600 S. Madison Street. Registration opens at 7:30 a.m. and the race begins at 8:30 a.m. The entry fee is $16 through June 25, with family and team entry discounts available. (You can register on the day of the event for $20.) Online registration is available through

Come join us and walk to give all infants a healthy start. For more information, please contact Wayne Kursh at 302-654-6400 or by email at
