Please join us for our FOURTH annual Baby Steps Foundation 5K to support those affected by pregnancy and infant loss. It's so crazy to see this crazy little idea we had to have a small 5K turn into hundreds of people. We cannot thank you enough for your support.
Baby Steps was created by moms affected or touched by loss. Our mission is to offer support to women and families while honoring their babies, as well as give back to the stillbirth and loss community. For those left behind, we hope to offer support, a safe space for grieving, and make a difference along the way.We have been doing a lot of things this past year and been blessed with many wonderful donations and support. But we can't wait to see what we can do with our 5K this year!
We will be at Roegner Park in Auburn again, because who doesn't want to walk along the river if you have to walk/run a few miles?! Parking will be available at Auburn High School but please pay attention to signage as parts of it are closed for other activities.
We thank you for supporting our mission and bringing a togetherness to a community that we are so passionate about. Your ticket purchase will include a t-shirt and one raffle ticket. Additional raffle tickets will be sold for $2 a piece. Children's ticket purchases do not include a t-shirt or raffle tickets. This trail will be fully paved and registration will be at the picnic shelter at Roegner Park. Pets are welcome they must be leashed and cleaned up after. A raffle will be held at the finish line, cash will be encouraged for purchasing additional raffle tickets for a chance to win

The proceeds from the race will go directly to Baby Steps Foundation and supporting our mission.
We are currently funding the cremation program for miscarriages, stillbirths and infants at St. Joseph's hospital in Tacoma, WA so no family has to financially take on that burden. You guys, this need has gone from 17 funded through all of 2021 to 19 just in the first three months of 2022. We need to keep this fund going! We have also funded headstones and donated mold kits to families at the hospital who have experienced a loss so they have something tangible to bring home with them. We have created Mama boxes for those early in their loss in 2021 and have received such amazing feedback on them. These are just some examples of service we have done in support of our mission.
We know these are difficult times for everyone, especially small businesses, but if your are interested in being a sponsor, please contact us!
