1-2-3 Wash Away CMV 5K & Awareness Walk in Lawton!

1-2-3 Wash Away CMV!

OKMRC has been invited to provide First Aid and to serve as Road Guards during the 5th Annual 1-2-3 Wash Away CMV 5K & Family Awareness Walk!

National Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Awareness Month is an annual observance held in June to increase awareness of CMV, the most common infectious cause of birth defects.

CMV is the most common infectious cause of birth defects in the United States. About 1 out of 5 babies with congenital CMV infection will have birth defects or other long-term health problems, such as hearing loss.  In 2011, Congress passed a resolution naming June “National CMW Awareness Month.” CDC takes this opportunity to increase awareness of congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) among healthcare providers, pregnant women, and parents.

Help us support this noble cause by volunteering from 8 am to 12 noon at the Cameron University Aggie Mile. We need medical staff to stand by for First Aid and non-medical road guards.

If you are interested in helping out, please call/text Rebecca at 580-682-1572 or email Rebeccaw@health.ok.gov

THANK YOU – OKMRC Volunteers are the BEST!
