Walk for Babies was created after a little baby girl named Amelia spent her first 26 days in the NICU at Akron Children’s Hospital. Her family was so grateful for the extraordinary care Amelia received, that they set an ambitious goal of raising $1,000,000 for the NICU in Akron. That was 12 years ago. Today Walk for Babies has succeeded in raising over $1,000,000 and continues to push forward to support the families of the patients in the NICU. This one mile, non-competitive family friendly walk starts in the stadium, and winds a safe path through downtown Akron, and on the towpath trail, ending with an award ceremony on home plate. Lunch is provided, many generous raffle items are available, and inspiring speakers help make this a day to remember. The goal of Walk for Babies is to raise money and awareness about the NICU at Akron Children’s Hospital so that children like Amelia will continue to get the medical help and support they so desperately need. Then they too, like Amelia, will be able to join in Walk For Babies to give back to the hospital that gave them so much.
