All diapers and a portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit Turning Point of Las Cruces to support its mission of information, education and support for growing families. For 6 weeks prior to the race we'll be out collecting diapers - come celebrate with us and guess the total number of diapers collected!

It is paved for the first 1.3 miles, is then fine gravel and small rock to the turn around point, and ends back on the pavement. The Family Fun Run lines up at 9am. 

Participants are encouraged to wear their race day shirts from RojoInk.com to show their support for the cause. Please note: Shirt size is only guaranteed with registrations before April 20th. 

The event includes Music, a Vendor Expo featuring local businesses, and a Family Fun Area with bouncy castles, face-painting and balloon animals, and a local Las Cruces Fire Station Ladder Truck for the kids to explore and learn about.

About No Child Wet Behind

No Child Wet Behind is a 501c3 dedicated to awareness, education and the donation of diapers to needy families with infants and small children.

When a family struggles to, or is not able to, provide diapers for their child, they are affected both physically and emotionally. Programs exist to assist families with basic necessities such as food, shelter and clothing, but surprisingly, diaper need is not supported by any government program.

No Child Wet Behind began as a local diaper drive and fundraiser with a 5k Run when owners of Northeast Doulas, a New York based Doula agency, learned of the struggle needy families were having keeping their babies clean and dry. 

Starting in 2016, No Child Wet Behind events have taken place around the United States in support of this important cause and to benefit local charities in need of diapers. New Mexico Doulas hosted their first event in Alamogordo, NM in May 2016 and raised over 30,000 diapers for that community. We hope to break 50,000 diapers this year in Las Cruces and truly keep changing things in New Mexico!
