Lucas Alexander Memorial Fundraiser

BENEFITING: Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

EVENT DATE: Oct 15, 2016

Sara Straw

THE STORY:

For the past ten years, our nation has officially recognized October 15 as an opportunity to honor and remember our precious babies who have gone home before us, and to spread awareness of the tragedy that befalls 1 in 4 women. And today, countries all over the world recognize Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day through balloon releases, candlelight vigils, memorial services, and other commemorative events. For our family, October 15 marks the 6 month anniversary of the day we found out our second son, Lucas Alexander, had passed away in utero at 34.5 weeks gestation. This year, I will be participating in the Baltimore Running Festival's 5k on October 15 in honor of Lucas and to raise awareness about pregnancy loss. One of the greatest treasures we have of our son are the professional photos taken of him just hours after he was delivered, provided to us free of charge by the nonprofit organization, Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. I would like to use this special day and event to help fundraise money for this incredible organization so that they can continue to provide support and cherished memories to other bereaved families. Please consider making a donation in Lucas' honor. Thank you, The Straws
