Leif's Legacy 5k Run/Walk: ALASKA

When: September 4, 2021
Where: Skagway, AK
Race type(s): 5K

Thanks for visiting our page and supporting our efforts to raise awareness to premature birth, pregnancy loss, and infant death. The Leif Aleutian Foundation is a NJ non-profit foundation formed by Brian and Jen Larsen, parents to Leif Aleutian. Leif's Legacy is a 5k Run & Walk founded in memory of their son who died in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) after living 52 hours earth-side; he died from a premature birth at 26.3 weeks.

This foundation and race are developed by his family to raise awareness to premature birth and infant death, helping more of the public realize how frequent infant loss occurs (1 in 4 women), while supporting further support to children in need and research to provide infants and babies a higher chance of survival. Proceeds from this 2021 race will be donated to 2 medical facilities — the Dahl Memorial Clinic in Skagway, Alaska and the Shore Medical Center's Special Care Nursery in Somers Point, NJ.
