It's our 11th Annual Baby Steps Memorial Run and we would LOVE to have you join us!!!
The Annual Baby Steps Memorial Run is a family friendly event that allows grieving families and their friends to come together to remember their loved ones in a supportive, caring environment. All proceeds benefit The Amelia Center at Children's Hospital of Alabama. Registration for the 5K will now include chip timing! 5K participants have a chance to receive 1st, 2nd and 3rd place medals and the chip timing will ensure accurate timing! We do not time the 1 mile fun run. However, we will provide a 1st place ribbon to the 1st 1 mile participant that crosses the finish line - all ages are welcome!
Online donations can be made through Children's of Alabama by clicking here.

Door prizes, awards and more will follow the run!
All memorial names submitted by 8/15/19 (with paid registration) will be included in the race shirt design and will have a memorial sign at the run. Please note we will keep all memorial signs to use in future runs. This allows us to save costs on reprinting signs for those who participate each year.
This race could not take place without each participant, volunteer and business sponsors! If you are interested in volunteer or sponsorship opportunities, please contact us.
We look forward to another year celebrating your loved ones with you!
