Address:

Leo’s Run 2016 is now open for registration.  Please click on the “Run Sign Up” image below.  Note that there are two different “types” of registration: Standard or “Spirit Runner.”  Please register as a standard participant if you’d like to come to participate in the run (or walk).  Please register, for yourself or others, as a “Spirit Runner” if you will not be able to attend.  The additional cost to register as a “Spirit Runner” accounts for us shipping your event shirt to you (so please include the shipping address where you want the shirt sent).  For both standard and “Spirit Runner” registrations, participants have choice between a cotton t-shirt or a technical running shirt.  There is an extra cost for the technical shirt.  Please let us know if you have an questions.

The second annual Leo’s Run 5k run/walk will take place on February 7, 2016. The run is in honor of our son, Leo Michael Mowery. He was stillborn on February 2, 2014. As an avid runner, a 5K run / walk around his birthday aides in the healing process and serves as a way to honor our son. He was born on Super Bowl Sunday of 2014 (February 2, 2014).  The first annual run was held in February of 2015 and was a tremendous success.  This year we look forward to building upon what we were able to do in year one, so we will embrace the cold of winter and honor Leo with a run/walk which starts at the East Silver Spring Elementary School (631 Silver Spring Ave), heads down to Sligo Creek Park, where Leo’s memorial ceremony was held, and returns to the school through the neighborhood and along the street where Leo would have been raised.

Proceeds from the run go toward Leo’s Garden, a registered 501(c)3 non profit, which not only includes the run, but also aspires to start a scholarship for children whose parents have experienced pre-natal loss (i.e. the recipient will have lost a sibling), and supporting and sponsoring creative and artistic activities or therapies such as yoga, art, and outdoor education as a means of promoting the well-being of families who have suffered still birth or other tragic loss.

Sleep and Baby Care Basics is the perfect class for working moms and dads-to-be who can’t make our Sleep Basics and Baby Basics classes during the workday. This special class is offered at a convenient time for working families and combines the need-to-know information from both of these classes.

This class provides an overview of everything you need to know about caring for your infant. We will cover normal newborn appearances, bathing, diapering, soothing techniques and how to read your baby’s cues. You will also learn about the importance of sleep (for both parents and baby!) and strategies to improve your baby’s daytime and nighttime sleep. Our hope is that with this class we can help dispel myths about sleep and help you and your family get adequate, safe sleep. We will discuss the science behind sleep and the implications it has on the breastfeeding relationship, in addition to addressing common obstacles to getting enough sleep and how to solve them. This is a great class to take before your baby comes so you know what to expect in the early weeks of your baby’s life. The instructor is one of our experienced IBCLCs.
