Infertility Awareness Walk & Fun Run
Presented by Sarah’s Laughter
Don’t Walk Alone
If you are walking through infertility, Sarah’s Laughter wants to walk alongside you—from realization to resolution—physically at Baby Steps, and emotionally year-round. Ironically, although infertility affects one couple in eight, many struggle in isolation. Don’t walk alone.
Meet Your Tribe
At Baby Steps and at our Support Groups, meet your tribe. Share your story. Find encouragement. Don’t walk alone.
Support Those Still Walking
If your infertility journey is resolved, come encourage those still walking. Encourage others with your miracle. Pray for those desperate for one. Walk, so they don't walk alone.
No One Walks Alone
If a loved one asked you to walk for them and you have no idea what infertility is, that’s okay. They asked because you matter to them. Walk, so they don't walk alone. Not everyone who walks at Baby Steps will leave with a grant or free IVF, but we want everyone to leave feeling the support of their loved ones, others walking through infertility, and those whose journey is resolved. So, we ask you to help us raise awareness and walk, so they don't walk alone.

If You're One of Eight, You're One of Us
One of eight couples (or 12% of married women) have trouble getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy. —2006-2010 National Survey of Family Growth, CDC
Current research has shown that the stress levels of women with infertility are equivalent to women with cancer, AIDS or heart disease. —RESOLVE
Infertility can lead to repeated cycles of isolation and stress. If you're "one of eight," you're not alone. You're not broken. You're one of us.
