We invite loss families and supporters to join us in helping bereaved families and honoring babies at our Second Annual Empty Stroller 5K run/walk and event.

All registration fees, t-shirt sales and donations will be used to assist families who have experienced the loss of a child through miscarriage, stillbirth or in the first few months of life. The Adalyn Rose Foundation assists families with burial and cremation costs, sends customized care packages and hosts events and support groups for bereaved families. This event is free for children 18 and under. Registration is required, but there will be no fee for children at check out. Children's shirts can be purchased individually at check out.  

Many of us will be running/walking with empty strollers to honor babies and spread awareness of pregnancy and infant loss. However, it is not a requirement of this event. Also, please feel free to create a team in honor of a baby gone too soon, and invite friends and family members to join! This 5K can be completed at our in person event on October 17th at the FirstEnergy Stadium, or anywhere, at anytime between October 1st and October 17th!

*Please know that our in person event could be cancelled at any time leading up to the event, due to changes in changing mandates and health safety guidelines. If this happens, your registration will not be able to be refunded, but we encourage you to still participate virtually*
