Liquid Gold 5k

Come celebrate the 8th Annual Liquid Gold 5k and bring awareness to breastfeeding as we kick off World Breastfeeding Week! 

The beautiful morning starts off at the University of Nevada, Knowledge Center. Our well marked course winds through the University campus and after the race please stay for our great family event. There will be a children's fair, kid/family friendly vendors, post race snacks and drinks, and a great raffle! And don't forget The Big Latch On which will take place after the race too! We will have fun Latch On swag bags too. 

Liquid Gold 5k is sponsored by the Northern Nevada Breastfeeding Coalition, which is a subcommittee of the Maternal and Child Health Coalition.
