Jack and Abby Smith would have celebrated their 5th birthdays this June. The race is a way to celebrate in their honor and help other babies who are in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit fighting for life.

About the race

The race is a 5k run/walk/stroller and 1/2 mile kids fun run so it's perfect for the entire family. The event takes place rain or shine.

In addition to a traditional race, the event includes:

  • Butterfly release honoring babies
  • Awards
  • Fundraising prizes
  • Jonathan the Juggler
  • Moon bounce
  • Snow cones
  • Bonnie the Bunny
  • Much more!

Fundraising

Fundraising goes a long way in helping babies in the NICU:

  • $50 can pay for one month of a breast pump rental for a NICU mom
  • $75 can pay for a pack n play for a baby to sleep safely when they go home
  • $100 can pay for one night in a hotel for parents who live far away
