In 2017 and 2018, SWMI RACERS and Ella's Soapbox presented Ella's Rainbow Walk to Remember. Thank you to the participants, sponsors, and volunteers who supported the event. The event is returning in 2021 with both a 5K Run or Walk and a 2K Run/Walk.
Please join us at The Livery on Saturday, October 16, 2021. The 5K Run and 5K Walk start at 11 am, with the 2K starting 5 minutes later. A virtual option is also available from October 16 through October 23.
Proceeds from this year's event will benefit Share Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support and Duke University's Neural Tube Defect study.
October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Nearly one in four pregnancies results in loss. It is often a lonely grief, and pain is overlooked or treated insensitively by those who do not comprehend that a person, a child, a loved one, has been lost. Women and families often grieve alone and in silence.
In December 2015, Ella Marie lived 3-1/2 incredible days with her twin brother Lennox and their family.
The Inaugural Ella's Rainbow Walk to Remember in 2017 raised $1000 each for Share Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support and Duke University's Neural Tube Defect study. Over 100 people walked in memory of a baby and in support of each other.
Proceeds from the 2018 event benefitted Duke University NTD Research Fund and Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Remembrance Photography
