Hope & Hearts Run/Walk

It's a sad fact that many of us know someone, or have experienced ourselves, a pregnancy loss, infant loss, or infertility. Now is your chance to raise awareness and help support families grieving such a loss. Mark your calendars for Sept. 12 and register to run or walk Kaila & Grace's Hope & Heart's 5k to benefit the Missing GRACE Foundation. The kiddies can participate, too, in the Kids Fun Dash. The run/walk will take place at the Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park.

The Missing GRACE Foundation is a non-profit charity that "offers resources and support nationwide for families that have experienced: pregnancy loss, infant loss, infertility or adoption." The organization also focuses on helping to decrease infant mortality through education and research.

You can run or walk the 5k as an individual or gather a group of family, friends, or co-workers to form a team. You can even create a fundraising site that would be a personal memorial web site for someone you want to remember. If volunteering is more your speed, they definitely need help with planning, advertising, posting flyers, registration and more. You can also donate. Contact Missing GRACE for more information about volunteering or donating at: or 736-497-0709.

Hope to see you on the trail...
