Baby Steps and Baby Wings 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 - Portland
Baby Steps and Baby Wings 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 *This is a virtual race! Did you know that Baby Day is on May 2nd, 2019? As the name suggests, it celebrates babies! What an amazing day to celebrate! We love babies! Baby feet, baby toes, baby fingers, baby smiles and baby giggles. There’s nothing better than a baby! While it’s a day of celebration for some, it is also a day of heartbreak, grieving and loss for others. We know that many people have struggled and continue to struggle with infertility, miscarriages, sick children and sweet babies that go back to heaven much too soon. To make Baby Day special for everyone, we want to invite you to join our first annual Baby Steps and Baby Wings 1 Mile 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 to honor all babies, both on earth and in heaven. Each participant will be given a beautiful medal, the white wings on the medal are made of beautiful white stained glass. Along with honoring babies, we will also be donating at least 15% of every registration to Baby Quest Foundation, which provides financial assistance through fertility grants to those who cannot afford the high costs of procedures such as IVF (in vitro fertilization). Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 through this race! Each year we will be donating to a different charity and this year we are excited to see how we can help the Baby Quest Foundation! *FOR A LIMITED YOU CAN PURCHASE YOUR OFFICIAL T-SHIRT AND/OR HOODIE HERE. What: This is a one mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, and 26.2 mile virtual run (or walk) to honor all babies everywhere, both in heaven and on earth. You decide which distance you will complete.

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. Run on your own, or with friends! And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5K, 10K, half marathon and more!
