The next Angel Baby Mile event is scheduled for Saturday, May 9, 2020.
Again, in 2020 we will be providing an opportunity for you to sponsor a flower basket to honor your precious Angel Baby(s). Flowers will be lined up on the side of the race course of the Fargo Marathon. This section of the course will be called the Angel Baby Mile. At the completion of the event you will be able to take your Angel Baby's flower basket home with you. Flower arrangement will come in a white 8" hanging pot. The flowers will be all grown at the Baker Nursery (Fargo, ND). On our event day the arrangement may not be as full as picture shows because it will be early in the blooming season.
A baby that that was lost at any point during pregnancy, or even after birth.
The Angel Baby Mile is an opportunity to honor our lost babies. A specific mile of the Fargo Marathon, on May 18, 2019, will be called the Angel Baby Mile. Those interested in honoring a baby may sponsor a flower pot. The flower pots will be placed along the side of the race course. The Angel Baby Mile is sponsored by Vance Thompson Vision and the flower pots will be from Baker Nursery (Baker Garden and Gift, Fargo, ND).
The Angel Baby Mile is open to anyone who is interested in purchasing a flower pot to honor an Angel Baby. If you have been impacted in anyway by the loss of a baby, I encourage you to proudly honor their precious souls by sponsoring a flower pot in their honor.

Thank you to all who have chosen to honor these very special babies. It is such a true testament of LOVE.
The flowers are ordered on this website (angelbabymile.org). Each flower pot will have Angel Baby's name on it and who sponsored it. It is also an option to anonymously sponsor a flower pot.
If baby wasn't named they can be given any nickname you wish or can be left anonymous. Ex: Baby G, Baby Greenwood, Pumpkin, etc.
Yes! You will be able to select your flower arrangement when placing your order.
Yes! Please bring your flower home with you and watch it grow and blossom over the summer. If you are unable to bring the flower pot home with you for whatever reason we will be sure it blooms for you over the summer months.
That is ok! We would still encourage you to sponsor a flower pot in honor of your angel baby. After the event is over all remaining flower pots will be taken care of and we will be sure it blooms for you over the summer months.
Yes! If you want to run the race instead of hanging out at the Angle Baby Mile that it totally acceptable. Please feel free to make your way back to the Angel Baby Mile area after you finish your race.
The Angel Baby Mile was inspired by two sisters, Jules and Leni. I, their Mother, was not able to bring either girl home from the hospital. My heart broke and dreams shattered. Jules, the big sister, was born at 22 weeks with a conditioned called Anencephaly. This condition is not compatible for life outside of the womb. A few months after losing Jules we were blessed to have conceived Leni, the little sister. Leni had perfect development and growth. However, at 28.5 weeks little Leni's heart stopped beating. I love these two girls so much and am proud to call them my daughters. I want to share them with others. Just like Moms of living children like to do.
The Angel Baby Mile has been created for an opportunity for loss Moms, families, and friends to honor their Angel Baby(s). I want people to feel that they can and should share their precious baby(s). The mental and emotional struggle of trying to survive the loss of a baby is one of the hardest things a person will ever endure. It should not be a road walked alone. Community can help those grieving. I want to help build that community. Please remember that it is always okay to ask for help if you need it. Sometimes our tomorrows do not look bright. Those are tough times.
Lets build a community that can help lift others when they are feeling weak.
