Forget-Me-Not-Baskets Inc. presents The Elephant Run 5K and Kids' Run. 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. They are currently serving in five area hospitals. Forget-Me-Not Baskets uses the elephant as their logo to remind us that, just like elephants, we never forget those we've lost.

Forget-Me-Not-Baskets, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded by Sara Ringle in 2007. We provide comfort and peace to families who have experienced a loss during pregnancy or child birth by providing baskets or bags of comfort items 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 we hope it provides some support during this difficult time.
Since our start in 2007, we have donated over 2500 baskets and over 450 since January 2018. We serve five of our local hospitals including Wooster Community Hospital, Ashland's Samaritan Hospital, Pomerene Hospital in Millersburg, Aultman Hospital in Canton & Orrville. Our baskets include items such as: our elephant, comfort books for siblings, parents and grandparents, seeds of remembrance, ornaments, footprint kits and more.
All of our basket items can be purchased through our Store.
