Lydie's Loop: Steps Against Stillbirth 2023

Welcome to the eighth 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 23rd, please join us to celebrate the lives of babies gone too soon.  The 2023 event will be held in person but you can participate virtually from anywhere, or just support by making a donation!  

Follow us on Facebook for all event updates including a live reading of baby names on 9/23 at 9:30 am.

Back this year! Teams that fundraise $500 or more will 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. We also need event volunteers!  See FAQ for more details.


The schedule on September 23rd is:

8:15 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.  This will also be on Facebook Live.

9:45 Kids' Dash

10:00 5k Run or 1 mile Walk

10:45 Raffle and silent auction winners announced

All proceeds benefit 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.
