Lydie's Loop: Steps Against Stillbirth 2022

Welcome to the seventh annual Lydie's Loop: Steps against Stillbirth!  This event is named after Lydie Welliver, who was suddenly stillborn in 2014 at 34 weeks gestation.  The Wellivers are not alone; 23,500 babies are stillborn each year in the United States. Prevention methods and education are desperately needed.

On Saturday, September 24th, please join us to celebrate the lives of babies gone too soon.  The 2022 event will be held in person but you can still support from all over the world by making a donation or being a virtual participant! 

Follow us on Facebook for all event updates including more on a live reading of baby names on 9/24 at 9:30 am.

New this year! Teams that fundraise $500 or more can design a sign featured on the race route to honor a baby.  

You can register as an individual, create a team (many teams are in honor of a baby), or join a team. You can also register to volunteer at the event.  See FAQ for more details.


The schedule on September 24th is:

8:30 Check in, Raffle and Silent Auction, Balloon Twisting by Erica Carlson Children's Entertainment, Remembrance Table, Photo booth

9:30 Welcome including reading of baby names

9:45 Kids' Dash

10:00 5k Run or 1 mile Walk

10:45 Raffle and silent auction winners announced

This event benefits Count the Kicks, an organization that educates expectant parents about the importance of tracking baby movements to prevent stillbirth.  Research shows that a change in movement is sometimes the only indication that a baby is in distress.  Learn more here.
