About the Campaign
Join us for the 6th Annual Cam-Run 2.8 run/walk on September 10, 2022. All proceeds (100%) from Camerons memorial run/walk support a program giving comfort to hearts forever grieving the loss of a child. The Riley NICU has 80 to 100 parents leave with their arms empty each year. The Riley NICU Bereavement Program makes certain these broken hearts have added comfort through keepsakes of their Angel babies.

Please join us in a fun filled morning raising money for a great cause. All are welcome, strollers and pets. Three and under are free (the smallest t-shirt size will be youth small). There will be live music, prize drawings, and sweet treats. Please check out our Facebook page.

Like many grieving parents we worry what few memories we have may slowly fade over the years. We are extremely grateful for the beautiful keepsakes we received from the Riley NICU Bereavement Program. Each one plays a significant role in making memories last.

We strongly believe in this self-funded program and the Riley NICU nurses. They make certain parents receive the love and comfort through them and the keepsakes provided. This program is extremely important to keep financially capable of providing the keepsakes. Those keepsakes include; heart shaped heartbeat recorders, beautiful foot print necklaces, engraved boxes to keep the keepsakes in, angel bears, pictures, and even caskets.

We treasure each keepsake of our son Cameron, but our most treasured is the hand and feet molds. We are able to hold them, tracing each little intricate detail remembering the way he would hold our hands. Each keepsake triggers a memory that we are able to hold in our hearts forever until we need no more memories because we hold the real one.
