Forget-Me-Not Baskets, Inc. is a non-profit organization that provides comfort and peace to families who have experienced a loss during pregnancy or child birth. We currently serve 8 area hospitals and 7 OB Offices. Forget-Me-Not Baskets uses the elephant as their logo to remind us that, just like elephants, we never forget those we've lost. 

This race is a day of remembrance for some, a first 5K for others, a community race for locals and a blast for everyone!

Race Route

Our course is an out and back style with a sloping hill on the way out and a nice decline on the way back! It is an open course through the residential area of Orrville and through the Orrvilla Community. 

Forget-Me-Not-Baskets, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 2007. We provide bereavement baskets to families who have experienced a loss during pregnancy or child birth so that families do not leave the hospital with empty arms. We know that our baskets cannot take away the pain of families grieving a loss, but our hope is to provide support during their difficult time. 

Since our start in 2007, we have donated over 3000 baskets and over 200 since January 2019. We serve 8 local hospitals including Wooster Community Hospital, Ashland's Samaritan Hospital, Pomerene Hospital in Millersburg, Aultman Hospital in Canton & Orrville, Ohio Health Mansfield and Summa Health Akron & Barberton. Our baskets include items such as: our elephant, comfort books for siblings, parents and grandparents, seeds of remembrance, ornaments, footprint kits and more.
