  • Dr Cristin Slater from Idaho Center for Reproductive Medicine has donated her services for a cycle of IVF, in kind to the Footsteps for Fertility Foundation, to be awarded at the 5k race as a Footsteps for Fertility Foundation Grant.
  • Utah Center for Reproductive Medicine at University of Utah has donated services for a FREE cycle if IVF, in kind, to the Footsteps for Fertility Foundation, to be awarded at the 5k race as a Footsteps for Fertility Foundation Grant. 
  • In addition, all monies raised at the Idaho race will be awarded as monetary Footsteps for Fertility Foundation Grants (typically $5,ooo) providing more opportunities for each couple. 

The random selection process for the grants will take place directly following the 5K race. Each registrant will receive one complimentary ticket with their registration that may be entered for random selection to be awarded a Footsteps Grant for themselves, or for someone they know who requires fertility treatments. Please share this with anyone you know who needs fertility treatments. All registration monies and donations will directly benefit couples that require fertility treatments who participate in this race. 

**Please note that everyone who will be applying to receive a Footsteps for Fertility Grant must fill out and return the Footsteps for Fertility Foundation Grant application. The application can be found at our website under the grants tab. We will accept grant applications even on race day. We will only require a physician's note within 2 weeks of becoming a grant recipient.**
