We are pleased to share with you that The Van Metre Companies will be hosting the 29th Annual Van Metre 5K Run for Children’s National Health System in 2021. While it is uncertain at this time whether we will be able to host the event in person or if it will be a virtual event once again, we are still dedicated to supporting Children's National Healthy System and the young patients in their care.

Over the past 28 years, thanks to your generosity and support, we have raised over $2,600,000 for Children’s National Health System with our 5K Run event. This year, we continue our efforts towards raising the $2,000,000 we pledged to raise in five years to establish The Van Metre Companies Professorship in Fetal Cardiology.

Stay tuned for more details to be posted on our website for registration and ways you can contribute!

As the #VM5krun comes to a close, we’d like to pass along some sentiments from John and Reve Walsh and the Van Metre family! Van Metre thanks everyone for their continued support of Children’s National, which was just recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the nation’s top-10 children’s hospitals and #1 for newborn care for the fourth year in a row. This recognition of Children’s National shows why the Van Metre Companies have continued to support them for over 28 years, as we share the same core values, and we will continue to support them for many years to come.

Finally got the time to walk my mile for the race. We've had storms for the past 4 days.
Has anyone been able to log their time? I keep getting an error that "result could not be saved". Thank you.
Jeannie I am so proud of you. I also do a lot for children groups and think it is so important. I looked at every event and know the work behind all that hard work. Proud to know your family and I admire you so much.
