Please join us for the 4th Annual Kyleigh's Gift 5K Run and 3K Walk on Saturday, October 14 at Liberty Hospital!
Last year's Run Walk was a huge success, with over 300 participants and a total of $21,000 raised. In 2017 we will feature medals for 5K runners in each age group, fun family activities, the butterfly release and the optional candlelight memorial for bereaved families following the race.
The Run/Walk supports the Kyleigh's Gift Fund at the Liberty Hospital Foundation which provides SleepSack swaddles for every newborn in the Liberty Hospital Birthing Center. The swaddle is a wearable blanket that replaces loose blankets in the crib that can interfere with breathing. The program has expanded to offer more resources for families in need to encourage safe sleeping practices for newborns and to help prevent infant deaths. Kyleigh's Gift is also working on growing bereavement resources and support offered to families experiencing pregnancy or infant loss.
Rodger and Leann Weller created the Kyleigh's Gift Fund after the passing of their daughter, Kyleigh Elizabeth in 2012. The Fund was created not only to keep the memory of Kyleigh alive, but to recognize the loving care and support they received from the Birthing Center doctors, nurses and staff.
