Lafayette,LA–On Saturday,October 16, 2021,Maddie’s Footprints, a Lafayette based non-profit organization, will hold its 12th annual Footprints Forever 5k Run/Walk at River RanchTown Square. The Annual Footprints Forever 5k Run/Walk is a beautiful event where all of our families can come together in memory of our babies that left us too soon.
On this day we’ll have a 5k and 1 mile fun run/walk for all to participate in, blow up bounce houses for children, face painting, a giant cookie cake, and towards the end of the event we will have a balloon release. This event is held on October which is also Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month.
Maddie’s Footprints was established in January 2010 in memory of Madeline Noelle McGrew. The vision of Maddie’s Footprints is to help families who have experienced miscarriages, stillbirths or the loss of an infant. We help lead these families in the right direction when they are in need of information and/or counseling. We also offer these families financial assistance for end-of-life expenses and/or medical expenses that can be overwhelming during their difficult time.
