star legacy "let's not be still" 5k | ridgefield, ct
Pregnancy and infant loss awareness and research is a cause that is very dear to my heart, since we lost our son Henry in 2014 to stillbirth. Along our journey of healing, we created our own foundation - Anchors for Hope - and have also had the honor of getting involved with other organizations such as Star Legacy Foundation. Last year, I connected with Hilary Hughes who lives in my town and is the President of the Star Legacy Metro New York Chapter. She and her husband, Tyler, lost their son Oliver is 2013 for unknown reasons (very similar story to ours) and they have been working hard to raise awareness and funds for Star Legacy ever since. The event has a huge turn out, raising almost $100,000 and Lindsey Wimmer, the founder of Star Legacy, was there as well. This was an awesome and inspiring event filled with so much love and support, and I was so honored to be able to participate and help out through my gift of photography.
