2024 Nature's Emporium Run for Southlake

Baby, We Were Born To Run!!!

Hello to my Fellow Community Members,

My name is Krissy and I am a proud Newmarket resident and mom of 4. I am thrilled to be championing our Team, Baby WE Were Born To Run, again this year and we would love to have your support. We are so excited to raise awareness and support the Maternal-Child Health Program, in order to benefit the very smallest patients cared for by the amazing frontline workers at Southlake. This year, it is our goal to be the largest and youngest Team ever to hit the pavement with our mindset being ‘Kids Helping Kids’.

As a brief background, I’ll share my motivation. In 2017, my twin boys entered the world 8 weeks early. They were unable to breathe independently and were rushed to the NICU for urgent care. During our 26 days in the NICU, I watched the NICU team work miracles, not just with my children but for many other little ones as well. Their tireless effort and constant care for our most vulnerable and teeniest people is what drives us to give back and support future NICU families.

Beyond the amazing efforts made for my twins, Southlake delivers and cares for so many youngsters in our community. Many families, like ours, have benefited from Southlake within the many departments of the hospital. We are so grateful to have this incredible resource so close to home, but funding is extremely limited and our hospital relies heavily on community support and donations... please join us in supporting our incredible, hometown hospital… Southlake

This year, our Team goal is $26 000 to support the NICU and the Paediatrics Department. It is our hope to have the youngest and largest team to hit the pavement! While that is a big target, we are committed to meeting our goal and invite you to join us. We would love to have you join our Team and help bring kids home… it takes a village and that village starts here!

Thank you!

Krissy and the Kids
