No Foot Too Small
"THERE IS NO FOOT TOO SMALL THAT IT CANNOT LEAVE AN IMPRINT ON THIS WORLD."
"No Foot Too Small (NFTS) was founded in 2014 by Robin & Ryan Boudreau, insprired by their son Beau.
Determined to remember and celebrate their son, Robin & Ryan decided to host a benefit to raise money for research. A simple concept quickly transformed into an endeavor to honor and celebrate so many babies across the Corridor. It was evident after year one that this celebration of angels would become an annual event. In just three years, NFTS has raised over $80,000 and donated these funds to the March of Dimes to fund critical research to cure the abnormalities that threaten healthy pregnancies every single day.
With momentum and a mission to celebrate angels while serving families experiencing infant loss, Robin wasn't going to stop there. Reflecting on the 39 NFTS families served in just three years, she focused in on a common thread...the heartache and hardship involved at the time of delivery and subsequent loss of these angels. With that, she reached out to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics with the intention to make a difference locally.
NFTS is honored to be in a 3 year partnership with the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. NFTS fundraising efforts will establish a fund to support several initiatives within the department.
Robin and her committee are thrilled be partnering with UIHC on the following:
Building a labor and delivery suite in the hospital designed specifically for families experiencing infant loss
Developing support groups for families affected by premature birth, birth defects, and infant mortality
Providing financial assistance for families affected by unexpected infant loss
Funding research efforts related to curing the abnormalities that threaten healthy pregnancies
With a better alignment of the NFTS partnership with their mission, Robin & Ryan are inspired to make a difference for families right here in Iowa.
Thank you, Beau...for putting Mom to work!" -Robin Boudreau (Founder)
