Shelane’s Run

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.

Postpartum Support Virginia uses funds raised from the event to providing financial grants to women and families so they may access the treatment they truly need and deserve. Your participation will help to remove financial barriers that prevent families from receiving life-saving care.
