HEALs to the Pavement 5K

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, 5 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!!

*** 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!

Please join us for our second annual 5k run/walk to help support loss families. Put your heels to the pavement for a HEALing Embrace – to Help Everyone After Loss!

Event information:

Sufficient Grace Ministries is excited to be partnering with HEALing Embrace, an SGM Affiliate, to bring this amazing training to the Nebraska area.

This training equips nurses, chaplains, social workers, physicians, doulas, volunteers, and caregivers to implement a more comprehensive family-centered approach to caring for families facing a perinatal loss or life-limiting diagnosis in pregnancy with the following learner results. Recognize the bereaved parent’s perspective and the need for options and resources. Describe the caregiver’s responsibility in helping to create a lasting, tangible memory for bereaved parents experiencing perinatal loss. Apply companioning methods when forming a comprehensive family-centered perinatal loss support program in the hospital setting and beyond. Prepare a collaborative, multi-faceted palliative care team plan for perinatal hospice patients.

Get more information about the event on the SGM Perinatal Loss Support Training and Certification Facebook page.
