The Baby Steps Memorial Run draws grieving families and their friends together to remember their loved ones in a supportive, caring environment. The Amelia Center is a non-profit program that has served as a place of hope for grieving children, parents and families since 1997. The center offers free grief counseling to parents and grandparents who have suffered the loss of a child and also to children who have lost loved ones. The center operates by donations and continued support from its community members. For more information on The Amelia Center click here. In its first 11 years, the Baby Steps Memorial 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run raised more than $100,000 for The Amelia Center.
