About This Activity

Running to support the siblings of families experiencing infant loss.

The Mercy Run will support and the Mercy Whitfield Memorial Scholarship Fund, established to help siblings continue in their normal activities as the family comes to term with the loss of a new member. The Scholarship is for families who have recently experienced or are expecting the loss of an infant. It is our hope and prayer no family will ever need this scholarship. Sadly, the experience is far from uncommon. Each year 1 in 115 babies is delivered as stillborn, and 1 in every 102 newborns dies before the age of 28 days old. This devastating reality is more than tough on families, especially the siblings. The love and support of our family and friends has led us to reach out to help other families who find themselves in a similar situation. We have been in their shoes and want to share resources that have helped us navigate our loss.


Through the Mercy run, we also hope to raise awareness about infant loss resources available to families. For more information and to learn more about Mercy Elizabeth’s story, please visit:
