Little Monsters 5K For A Cause is a costume running/walking event. Participants are invited to dress up for this fun run for a cause. Those who are running in honor of their baby are also encouraged to form teams, make t-shirts, and bring signs/posters for our volunteers to hold and cheer runners/walkers on during the race. Strollers are welcome, we will just ask participants with strollers to start in the back. Participants and local businesses are encouraged to start a team! AFTER registering a team via the Active site, send an email to email@example.com. Include a story about why your team is participating. Reasons people will start a team include: walking in memory of a baby's NICU journey, helping to raise awareness about prematurity or infant loss, honoring an infant's short life, or to support this community cause.
This event is being held in support of and to raise awareness for those families who've had a baby born prematurely or critically ill and have had to spend any amount of time in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Preemie Prints supports families through various programs at St. Joseph's Hospital, The College Station Medical Center, and the new Scott & White Hospital. In addition this run/walk supports community angel families (those who've had a pregnancy or infant loss). October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month and together we celebrate the lives of many angels through a yearly remembrance event. This will be our third year holding this beautiful event.
Preemie Prints has a mission to support preemie, NICU, and angel families (families who have lost a baby) through a variety of outreach programs, learn more atwww.preemieprints.org. This run/walk makes our continued outreach possible. We very much need the support of the community to continue helping local babies and families, as we have been for the previous three years. Thank you for your support!
Baby Boo Bash also includes the Brazos Valley wide NICU reunion. All NICU families, no matter where their baby graduated from, are invited to come together to celebrate their little NICU grad! We will have live music, food, and fun for the whole family including music from Tubie & The Touchtones and kids entertainment from Charity The Clown.
