$10,000 Family-Building Grant

Sarah's Laughter will give one couple struggling with infertility a chance at becoming parents by giving them a $10,000 Family Building Grant toward the family-growing option of their choice: either adoption or infertility treatment at the SART-listed clinic of your choice. SART is the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology. SART clinics meet the highest standards for quality, safety and patient care.


Free IVF

ArkLaTex Fertility and Reproductive Medicine is generously giving away one free IVF cycle.

Welcome & Start of Fun Run

9 AM

This is not a timed or competitive race. You can walk or run, one lap or the entire hour; it's up to you.

Many walk in the company of friends and loved ones. Others choose solitude and contemplation. Some even bring their leashed dogs.

However you baby step, open your eyes and look around. Everyone you see that day: that's your support, your family, your tribe. If you're one of eight, you're one of us.


Door Prize Giveaways & Closing Ceremony

Captains Only

 

10' x 10' Tent spaces are available

Reserve a 10' x 10' space for a "tailgate" tent for your team at Baby Steps. We have a maximum of 20 reservations. Tent reservations are free, but are "first come, first served." (We do not provide tents.)

You will receive a reservation number in your fun run packet. A Sarah's Laughter volunteer will be available to show you you your tent space.

Team Captain Ticket Totals

Every ticket matters.

Since we have two major sponsors with door prizes, we have two ticket barrels. For each ticket number you have (whether through registrations or donations), you will be issued two color-coded tickets, each for a different barrel, each with the same ticket number. This means the total number of tickets you must fill out (or, preferably, labels you print) is under the column "Tx2." Please email us if you have any questions about your tickets.

FINAL Ticket Count: 4/18/2018 2:13:53 PM

Support Letter

Can’t find the words to ask for support from friends and loved ones? We have a sample letter for you. Feel free to change it up and make it your own. Just be sure to replace [spouse] with your spouse’s name and [Team Name] with your actual team name. Good luck!
