Finally! The weather is warm, sunny and the sky is blue. After being shut in all winter with your family it is time to get outdoors and have some family fun. We all know that Westchester County has a ton to offer all year round, but, spring and summer have a jam-packed calendar of family fun. Check out these Family festivities happening in our backyard next weekend.

Northeast Doulas are proud to once again bring you a family fun day and 5k, Sunday, May 13th. The 6th annual No Child Wet Behind 5K and Family Fun Day is returning to FDR Park in Yorktown Heights.

Enjoy a fabulous morning filled with activities while teaching your little ones the value of giving back during this diaper drive and fundraiser. Kicking off at 8 am with a Ladies Only 5 K and a 2-mile fun run.

There is nothing more incredible than the mix of philanthropy and fun, you can truly make a difference with your diaper donations as Northeast Doulas spreads awareness about the many babies in need of clean, dry diapers throughout Westchester County and our nation. Children of all ages will enjoy many activities including a bouncy house, face painting, carnival games, a clown, vendors, food, special speakers and more.
