High Risk Hope Tot Trot 3K
At Gadsden Park
7th Annual Tot Trot presented by Jersey Mike’s will take place at Gadsden Park in Tampa on Saturday, November 16. Check-in to start at 8:30 a.m. and the race to begin at 9:30 a.m. Proceeds from the fundraiser benefit High Risk Hope, which aims to positively impact the premature birth rate by educating the community and supporting mothers through the trauma of high-risk pregnancy and premature birth.
The global premature birth epidemic affects 15 Million babies every year and is the leading cause of death for newborns and the second leading cause of death for children under five. It causes lasting complications in babies that survive their preterm birth, such as intellectual disabilities, vision and hearing loss, learning and behavioral problems, cerebral palsy and lung problems.
