Supporting The Amelia Center at Children's Hospital in Birmingham, AL
All proceeds from the Annual Baby Steps Memorial Run benefit The Amelia Center in Birmingham, Alabama. The Amelia Center is a non-profit program of Children’s Hospital which has served as a place of hope for grieving children, parents and families since July 1997. The center offers free grief counseling to parents and grandparents who have suffered the loss of a child and also to children who have lost loved ones. The center operates by donations and continued support from our community members and it is programs like this that are vital to many people here locally and in our neighboring communities. For more information on The Amelia Center visit www.ameliacenter.org. We have chosen to support this program as parents who have suffered the loss of our children.
Amazed by the support received after organizing the first Baby Steps Memorial Run in 2009, we decided to make this an annual run. Over the past three years the Baby Steps Memorial Run has raised over $40,000 for The Amelia Center.
The Baby Steps Memorial Run is an event that allows grieving families and their friends to come together to remember their loved ones in a supportive, caring environment. Baby Steps’ mission is to assist in the healing process and with your support; together we will be “taking BABY STEPS to mend broken hearts!”
