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 grief counseling to parents and grandparents who have lost a child and also to children who has lost loved ones. The center operates by donations and continued support from our community members. Programs like The Amelia Center 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 the first Baby Steps Memorial Run in 2009, we decided to make this an annual event. Over the past six years the Baby Steps Memorial Run has raised over $100,000 for The Amelia Center.
