All proceeds from the 2018 Anna's Grace Quarter Marathon will benefit Anna's Grace Foundation, a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization offering emotional and financial support to families in the Greater Baton Rouge Area who experience miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss. One out of every four pregnancies will end in a loss. It's a staggering statistic which means that each and every day one of our neighbors, friends, coworkers, or family members will experience the heartbreaking loss of a child. The Anna's Grace Quarter Marathon is the foundation's biggest fundraiser providing important funds for projects like the Anna's Grace Financial Assistance Program which, to date, has helped over 180 local families with burial, cremation, or grave marker expenses. None of this would be possible without the generosity and support of our community. Thank you for joining us in 2018. We hope to see you again as we run for the 1 in 4 in 2019!
