About the event
Please join us for our FIFTH 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. This year we are also adding a small market to the race! Come check out a few local vendors and what they have to offer the community.
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 Riverside 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 WILL include a shirt this year which is why the registration price is higher this year. If you do NOT wish to have a youth size t-shirt, you can choose NO SHIRT at checkout and $15 will be taken off the registration price for the standard $10 we usually do. 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

If you would like to donate more than the ticket price of the race you can make checks out to Baby Steps Foundation or bring cash to drop in donation bin the day of the race. You can also visit www.babystepsfoundation.org for online donations or make a donation when you purchase your ticket.
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. We need to keep this fund going! The amount the hospital has needed has kept growing over the years. 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. We have now sent out over 150 boxes. 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!
