2024 Inova L.J. Murphy Children's Hospital StarKid 5K and Fun Run
The Inova L.J. Murphy Children's Hospital StarKid 5K and Family Fun Run will be held on Sunday, June 2, 2024, at the Fairfax Corner Shopping Center. It's a fun-filled morning of fitness, community, music, and more! We welcome runners, joggers, skippers, walkers, and spectators of all ages. Strollers and your favorite four-legged friends are welcome, too.

The Inova StarKid 5K and Family Fun Run has been an Inova Children's community tradition since 2006 and features both a 5K run and family friendly half-mile course. The event was originally created to support our Pediatric Heart Program. But StarKid has grown significantly over the years and proceeds now benefit pediatric services across the Inova Health System.

This means you can raise funds that positively impact pediatric care at Inova L.J. Murphy Children's Hospital as well as every Inova location currently caring for our kids. From patients to programs and everything in between, your support and participation has made StarKid a success, so let's do it again!
