New this year:
This year Turkey Trot participants will have the opportunity to join in creating a display that honors the lives of babies and children gone too soon. Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of an item such as an ultrasound photo, picture of your child, a letter you have written to your child, share a memory, and/or a poem as a tribute to your loved one. Blank Note Cards will be available during check-in for you to complete if desired. Please make sure to collect your item at the end of the Turkey Trot.
All proceeds will benefit Infants Remembered In Silence, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to offering parents, families, friends and professionals support, education and resources on the death of a child.

Funds raised will be used to provide bereavement support to families who have had a child die in early pregnancy (ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, miscarriage, etc.) or from stillbirth, neo-natal death, birth defects, illness, accident, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID) (accidental suffocation, strangulation, overlay, etc.), and all other types of infants and early childhood death.
