Minnesota 9th Annual Hope & Hearts Run / Memorial Walk

As I previously wrote about my daughter Sophia Ann was born prematurely at 23 weeks and passed away a mere 9 hours later.  In memoriam of her and all children who left us too soon.

The Minnesota 9th Annual Hope & Hearts Run / Memorial walk is Saturday September 20th at the Bunker Hills Regional Park in Coon Rapids.  The registration starts at 7am and the run begins at9am with the walk starting at 9:15.

I have registered to walk in memory of my daughter and if anyone else would like to register to run/walk please visit my page at https://secure.qgiv.com/hobnob/event/hopeandhearts/account/191113

After the race there will be an awards ceremony as well as a balloon release for all that are no longer with us.

All  proceeds go towards  the Missing Grace Foundation.  This is a national non-profit foundation that provides education and bereavement material for care givers as well as resourses and support for families that have experienced pregnancy loss, infant loss, infertility or adoptions.  From personal experience after losing Sophia the hospital had no real information or resourses to give me for my situation.  All information was regarding miscarriages and not infant loss due to prematurity.

Thank you for reading and I hope to see you there!.
