About Kyleigh's Gift

Each year, Kyleigh's Gift helps thousands of families by providing infant wellness education and pregnancy & infant loss resources to the Northland community.  

The annual Kyleigh’s Gift Run Walk is a great way to support the fund, and offers a Candlelight Ceremony in honor of National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.  

We hope you and your family will join us on October 9th for an afternoon of family fun for a great cause!

  • Fundraising 
  • Help us reach our goal!  Kyleigh's Gift continues to serve more families each year.  We need your help to continue to offer infant wellness programs and resources to our community.  Fundraising is not required for run/walk participation, but is welcomed!  We have many resources for you to get started.  If you have questions, please visit our FAQ page, or contact the Foundation office at foundation@libertyhospital.org.

  • COVID PROTOCOLS:

  • All attendees are required to wear face coverings while at indoors, including the Hospital and the Medical Plaza East building. 

    All participants, spectators, staff and volunteers are required to wear face coverings while in or near the start and finish line located behind Medical Plaza East. Face coverings may be removed once a participant has crossed the start line and on to the race route.

    Participants are encouraged to wear face coverings during the Wave of Light Candlelight Ceremony.  Additional masks will be available post-race for participants who have discarded or lost their mask along the course.

    Spectators are encouraged to wear face coverings, and will be required near the start and finish line.

  • SOCIAL DISTANCING:

  • While staging for the start of Kyleigh’s Gift, we will ask all participants to leave a minimum of 3 feet in front, behind, and to each side of you as you line up. 

    After the start horn, participants will be asked to maintain distancing as they progress through the chute, and only begin running after crossing the start line.

    While on the course, it is up to each participant to maintain distancing as much as possible.

    To alleviate the total number of participants staging at the start line, we will send out runners/walkers in waves:
     - First wave: Runners
    - Second wave: Walkers & Strollers
    - Third wave: Teams  

If Kyleigh's Gift is moved to virtual, rescheduled, postponed or canceled due to COVID-19, weather conditions or occurrences outside and beyond the control of both parties listed above, your registration will be considered a donation to the Liberty Hospital Foundation.
