5k and 1 mile memorial run

benefiting The Amelia Center at Children's of Alabama

Are you interested in helping with the Baby Steps Memorial Run?  

We are currently seeking race committee members and race day volunteers.  

I am very excited about this new direction for the memorial run!   The Baby Steps Memorial Run was founded by the Nicholas and Hodge families in 2009 after both of our families lost children. We decided to start the run to benefit The Amelia Center at Children’s of Alabama each year as a way to show thanks for the services provided by the center to us after our loss. Each year we continue to grow the 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run with an average of over 500 participants.  These participants include families who have had a significant loss of a loved one (regardless of age) as well as friends and community members who are there to support those families and The Amelia Center.  

We are currently seeking committee members!  Joining the committee is a great healing opportunity for those who have suffered the loss of a loved one.  The founders of the run have received healing from organizing the run and would like to pass this opportunity on to those who are in need! 

I wanted to provide some important information regarding membership.

  • We will hold monthly meetings which all members must attend (day and time will be determined once members are selected)​
  • Members will be selected for a two year term.  This will allow a transition/training period for new members joining.  This will help ensure that someone will always know how tasks are handled in each area as members’ transition out of their role. 
  • We ask that members provide leads for future sponsors, provide ideas/areas for improvement each year and assist with monitoring and posting to social media


Committee Roles include: 
SPONSORSHIPS MEMBER
REGISTRATION/PACKET PICKUP MEMBER
MEMORIAL PIECE MEMBER
REFRESHMENTS MEMBER
ENTERTAINMENT MEMBER
VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR MEMBER
SOCIAL MEDIA MEMBER



I hope that you find this information helpful and hope that you will consider applying for the committee to help the Baby Steps Memorial Run continue to be a successful event for The Amelia Center. 



All applications must be received by October 15, 2016.






Sincerely,

Abby Nicholas
