In honor of National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, we will be having a pregnancy and infant loss remembrance ceremony and balloon release to honor all infants who passed away before their 1st birthday. There will also be a remembrance wall to pay tribute to and honor your loved ones; you are welcome to bring pictures, letters and messages to add to the remembrance wall.

5k – Walk/Run Help raise funds to fight pregnancy and infant loss! 5K Walkers/runners get an event T-shirt, and free snack/drink with their paid registration. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place runners in both male and female groups will receive a medal. Early bird registration ends on September 30th at 11:30 pm at a cost of $20.  Late registration continues until October 27 for $30 and Onsite registration will also be accepted starting at 8am at the event (cash or check only), but we cannot guarantee a T-shirt will be available for onsite registration.
