Team Hand to Hold: 3 Ways to Get Involved

December 4, 2018

A NICU stay is a marathon, not a sprint. Team Hand to Hold is with you every step of the way.

Everyone is invited to join Team Hand to Hold! Runners and walkers of all levels can sign up to run on behalf of Hand to Hold in the Austin Marathon, Half Marathon, or Paramount 5k, taking place on February 17, 2019.

Thanks to Austin Gives Miles, Hand to Hold is proud to be an official charity for this fun annual race. Team Hand to Hold raised over $22,000 during the 2018 event, and we want to raise even more this year.


Here’s how you can get involved:
