What is the distance of the stroll?

This year we are introducing a weekly walking goal.

  • Week 1 Challenge: Walk 35 minutes for 3,500 babies
    35 minutes equals approximately 3,500 steps. 
  • Week 2 Challenge: Walk 3,500 steps for 3,500 babies
    3,500 steps equals approximately 35 minutes of walking
  • Week 3 Challenge: Walk 3.5 miles for 3,500 babies 
    It takes about 70 minutes to walk 3.5 miles. We recommend walking twice for 35 minutes during week 3.  
  • Week 4 Challenge: Walk 3.5 hours by end of the month for 3,500 babies
    During week 4, you should walk twice for 35 minutes. And then, by the end of October, you should have completed approximately 6, 35 minute walks to walk for a total of 3.5 hours.

Where should I walk?

Because the stroll is virtual, there is no set location. You can walk wherever you feel comfortable. You can gather your family and friends and walk in your neighborhood or a local park.

How do I let Cribs for Kids know when I choose to walk?

When you begin your walk, take a picture or video of yourself and/or your family walking and post it to social media. In the caption or video, tell us why you walk. Remember to tag Cribs for Kids and use the hashtags #BreathofLifeStroll and your team name.

Cribs for Kids is on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter

How do I join the Remembrance Ceremony?

This year, the remembrance ceremony will be held in-person at the Cribs for Kids Headquarters in Pittsburgh on October 1, 2022 at 12 PM – 3 PM ET. Cribs for Kids will share the video of the Remembrance Ceremony on October 15th at 7 PM in recognition of the Wave of Light.

Do I have to create a team to participate?

No, you do not have to create a team to participate. You can participate as an individual or as a general registrant.

What is a Team?

A team is a group of individuals who walk and raise money together. A team may be a company, an individual family unit, or a larger group of family and friends.

If you would like to invite people to walk with you and would like their donations to count towards your team total, have them register under your designated team name.

How do I qualify for giveaways?

Each week we will announce a new giveaway via email and our social media channels. The prize will be given to the top fundraiser of the week.

Where does my donation go?

One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event will go toward funding our infant safe sleep programs and providing cribs to families in need. These programs make a difference to families in our communities every day. Every $70 we raise, can save an infant’s life!
