HEALS to the Pavement

Saturday October 13, 2018

Please join us for the 4th Annual HEALs to the Pavement for Pregnancy & Infant Loss!

Our hearts are overflowing with the amount of love and support this event has received over the past 3 years! Our third annual event impacted approximately 1,300 lives. The courageous families that have experienced a pregnancy or infant loss flooded the crowd with their brave faces. The stories, the laughter and tears and the plethora of love and support was felt throughout the evening. The families and friends that have been touched by loss leave this event feeling loved, validated, safe and supported. The legacy that their baby has is felt at this beautiful and honoring event.

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 statistically today 71 mothers will give birth to a baby born not alive. 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 or passed away before their first birthday. Between the two founders, 6 babies have left them too soon. HEALing Embrace is a designated fund through the Midlands Community Foundation and the goal is to support families that are grieving the loss of their children through financial aid to help cover medical and funeral expenses, postpartum care and grief counseling. HEALing Embrace also provides FREE grief resources, weighted birth day bears and care packages, certified bereavement support and photography. We walk with families prior, during and after the birth of their precious baby in the hospital and home to help provide them the best support possible.

Our mission to HEAL – Helping Everyone After Loss – would not be possible without your arms wrapped around these families and showing your support. We would love to have you join us this year for another encouraging, impactful and touching event!

The venue is set and we are getting geared up for another beautiful evening of honor!

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!
