Comforting Kids Foundation is devoted to helping provide comfort and normalcy in the hospital environment, creating a “home away from home” atmosphere for infants, children, and their families throughout Northern and Central California. Since 2008, we have been fulfilling the wish list of the Child Life programs at Valley Children's Hospital-Madera, Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland, Children’s Center at Sutter Medical Center in Sacramento, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital and Bailey’s Treasure Box. Comforting Kids has chosen to continue the “legacy of giving” of Bailey, a local little girl who took joy in giving to others throughout her four-year battle with cancer. Since September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, participating in Bailey’s Legacy Run is the perfect way for you to support Comforting Kids and to show your support for the children and families who continue to fight cancer. Bailey’s Legacy Run encourages participants to create team shirts in honor/memory of a loved one affected by cancer or another long term disease. Both the 1 mile and 5K races start at Pioneer Park and follow a local designated route. All participants receive a “Bailey’s Legacy Run” bracelet. This is a charity fun run. We will only be recording order of placement, not your time. However, a race clock will be at the finish line for you to check your own time. An award ceremony will be held at 9:30 am near the finish line. We hope to see you on September 3, 2016!
