My husband and I lost four babies. The first was at 13 weeks pregnant. It is an unimaginable sadness and pain.
And I know that I am not alone.
In 2017, I designed the first Run for the Angels medal to honor mothers (and families) of angels. What resulted was an outpouring of love and hope bigger than I could have ever imagined. Since that time, so many of our participants shared their stories with us. So many have told us that this event has helped them heal. And that makes me SO beyond happy.
To continue our vision of making the world a better place one step at time, $3 from each registration is donated to a pregnancy/infant loss charity (noted in event description). What little is left after that donation and expenses (custom medals, shirts, and bibs, credit card fees, taxes, website maintenance, building upkeep, and expensive advertising costs) is our profit -- and a lot of that profit funds our own non-profit organization, the Erin Regan Animal Sanctuary. We save animals from abuse, neglect, and deathrow and find them loving homes or keep them on our sanctuary forever. The sanctuary was named after the first baby we lost. Though I will never be a mommy, I am fulfilling another important purpose: saving the lives of animals in need.
Your participation helps us do amazing things. And for that, we are truly grateful.
Thank you for participating. Thank you for helping to break the silence.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
