2nd Annual Ella’s Rainbow Walk to Remember
Sunday, October 14, 2018 @ 4:00 pm
The Livery Microbrewery, 190 5th Street, Benton Harbor, MI 49022

SWMI RACERS and Ella’s Soapbox present the 2nd Annual Ella’s Rainbow Walk to Remember on Sunday, October 14, 2018 at 4:00 pm.
October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Nearly one in four pregnancies results in loss. It is often a lonely grief, and pain is overlooked or treated insensitively by those who do not comprehend that a person, a child, a loved one, has been lost. Women and families often grieve alone and in silence.

In December 2015, Ella Marie lived 3-1/2 incredible days with her twin brother Lennox and their family. The Inaugural Ella’s Rainbow Walk to Remember raised $1000 each for Share Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support and Duke University’s Neural Tube Defect study. Over 100 people walked in memory of a baby and in support of each other.

Proceeds will benefit Duke University NTD Research Fund and Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Remembrance Photography.

FEES:
15 & Over : $20 through September 30
$25 October 1 through Race Day
Ages 7 – 14: $15 through Race Day
Ages 6 & Under are FREE (No shirt)

Paid registrations include a short sleeve event t-shirt. Adult sizes are the Gildan Softstyle SemiFitted style in a soft 100% Ringspun Cotton preshrunk jersey knit.

Submissions of names should be made by Sunday, October 7 to be included on the wall. Please email racers@swmiracers.org and include Ella’s Rainbow Walk Remembrance Wall in the Subject Line.
