Last April, the Santa Fe Children's Museum hosted it's inaugural 5k Run/Walk in memory of Michaelann Perea, Museum Board member and community volunteer who inspired and changed many lives and truly cared for everyone she encountered. The fundraiser brought members of our community together in tribute to Michaelann and​ supported a cause that was dear to her heart, the Santa Fe Children's Museum. 

Your support is crucial to the success of our award-winning programs that help children learn and grow. Donations provide the necessary resources to enrich the lives of children, ensure access for everyone, and create lifelong memories for families. Your investment fuels playful learning and enriching experiences that are essential for a child's development. Your involvement in this event and contributions will help us nurture young minds and inspire the next generation of innovators. With your support, we can provide a safe and stimulating environment that encourages children to learn and play freely.

Help us create a brighter future for all children!
