Sponsor the Event


Miles for Max was created in July 2011. Our first race was September 27, 2011 and we are excited to continue this event.

Why we run: On May 21, 2011 our son Max was born at 18 weeks gestation. He was two small to survive. We were devastated. The care and compassion we received during the most difficult time in our lives was amazing. We want to continue to support families who have endured the loss of a child, so they can have all the resources and support they need to love and remember their beautiful children.

We are forever grateful for the care we received during the most difficult and the most joyous times in our lives. Miles for Max is a way for us to give back and honor the beautiful children we carry in our hearts. Thank you for participating in this journey with us.

Race registration is $30 per person and includes Miles for Max and Hopeful Heart Project race swag. The 5K is located in Wahpeton, ND.


Registration begins at 8:00am and will be located at the Langendorfer Shelter in Chahinkapa Park - next to the playground. Official race start time begins at 8:30am. 

If you are unable to attend, you are still welcome to register and you can participate any time during the month of August in honor of Max.
