About This Activity

Register by October 10th to guarantee your awesome race t-shirt!  

This 5k run - 1 mile walk is to raise money for pregnancy and infant loss.  An estimated 1 in 4 women will experience this type of loss and today 71 mothers will give birth to a sleeping baby.  Finding support while coping with this type of loss can be very difficult in our community.  HEALing Embrace was created in honor of babies born silently to pregnancy and infant loss.  Between the two founders, 6 babies have left them too soon. HEALing Embrace is a designated fund through the Midlands Community fund and the goal is to support families that are grieving the loss of their children through financial aid to help cover funeral expenses, medical expenses, postpartum care and grief counseling.

This year our event is on the official Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day.  It's a day that's celebrated all over the world, so we are pleased to be able to host it on this special day.  A special "Light up the Night" event will be taking place again this year!  Our Light up the Night event is a unique and beautiful way for you to remember your baby. By participating, you are helping cover the costs of the { FIREWORKS }, luminaries and will have the opportunity to have your baby(ies) name on the group name sign and individual signs that will be along the race path. Those signs are for you to take home afterwards! <3 Our inaugural event last year had an overwhelming response for this so we are excited to bring this opportunity back this year!!  Registration for the Light Up the Night event to have your child's name on the banner ENDS Wednesday October 5th!  

*** You read that right!  We are proud to announce that we will be having { FIREWORKS } at the conclusion of our event this year!  Thank you so much to the City of Omaha for your approval!  This is going to be a memorable event!

** JUST ADDED!!!!   Kids Tot Trot!  If you have a child 7 and under, it's free for them to participate!  Please make sure you register your kiddos 7 and under and their shirt size!!  The Tot Trot will start at 7:00p.m.  

We are proud to welcome Table Grace Cafe as our food vendor this year!  They will be selling pulled pork sandwiches, brats and hotdogs!  Big Kahuna Kettle Corn, The Omaha Coffee truck and Nothing Bundt Cakes will all be there to sell you food and snacks to keep your bellies full and kiddos happy!  ;)  Oh... the coffee truck will make me very happy!

The live music will be a sure hit!  

Bring your chairs and blankets for an evening full of family fun!
