Description

_ The 2022 Anna's Grace Quarter Marathon, 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run:

The Anna’s Grace Quarter Marathon is now Footprints Forever Quarter Marathon, and we are once again running for the 1 in 4!  The race benefits Maddie's Footprints Baton Rouge which is designed to help families in the Greater Baton Rouge Area who have experienced a miscarriage, stillbirth, or loss of a child under one year of age by providing financial and emotional support.

About Maddie's Footprints: 

Maddie’s Footprints was established in January 2010 in memory of Madeline Noelle McGrew. The vision of Maddie’s Footprints is to help families who have experienced miscarriages, stillbirths or the loss of an infant. We help lead these families in the right direction when they are in need of information and/or counseling. We also offer these families financial assistance for end-of-life expenses and/or medical expenses that can be overwhelming during their difficult time.

We are excited and honored that Anna's Grace founder, Monica Alley, contacted us to ask us to take the reins for her in the Baton Rouge area.  We are looking forward to growing our presence in Baton Rouge to allow us to serve even more families and help them to navigate one of the most difficult times in their lives.  With 11 years of experience working with bereaved families in Acadiana, reaching over 1,800 families and paying out over $1 million in financial assistance, the Maddie's Footprints family is eager to extend our love to the Baton Rouge area.

Here is a little background on what Maddie's Footprints provides in Acadiana, and what we are excited to bring to the Baton Rouge area. Click the link below for a quick video.

SWITCHING RACES

Please note that we have always had a NO REFUND policy due to the costs of hosting the event and its charitable nature.  However, you may switch distances or between virtual and regular options.  The LAST DAY to switch is MARCH 10.  Here's how:

  • Go to your confirmation email and click on "Manage Your Registration."
  • Click on "Transfer Event" in the blue area.

You will have to go through the registration process to pick your preferred event.  This will show you the price change (credit or difference).  You will also be asked if you would like to remain on your current running team.

 

Running Teams

Teams make a huge difference in enabling Maddie's Footprints Baton Rouge to fulfill its mission of paying for funeral or burial costs associated with miscarriage and infant loss,  and we hope that you will consider being a part of our efforts. Please keep in mind that running teams and fundraising teams are distinct and separate groups.  You will be able to create a RUNNING TEAM when you register yourself for the event.
