About Running for a world without NEC


The NEC Society has organized a mighty 24-person team training to complete 26.2 miles (!) in support of the NEC Society. 

WHEN:  December 4, 2022

WHY:  To honor our sons, daughters, grandchildren, and loved ones who have faced a devastating disease like NEC by raising awareness and accelerating vital research.


Your tax-deductible donation will help the NEC Society:

  1. Accelerate urgently needed research 
  2. Implement evidence-based practices
  3. Build a diverse and inclusive movement committed to advocating for infants & families
And much more as we work tirelessly to prevent and improve NEC outcomes. You can learn more about our work at


Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a devastating intestinal disease that affects thousands of families. In the US, about 500 babies die each year from NEC and thousands are left with lifelong complications like short bowel syndrome. NEC is one of many rare pediatric diseases with inadequate prevention and treatment options. 

The NEC Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to building a world without NEC. The NEC Society CIM runners are parents, friends, nurses, doctors, and community members who believe in bringing people together for a cause greater than ourselves.
