Hope For Chance is an organization that was created to raise awareness for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), help pay for the services and burials/cremations of infants whose families would be unable to afford it, and to help fund research for the Syndrome.
This year we are planning our 2nd Annual “Run For Hope” to raise awareness and funding for our organization. There will also be a “fun walk” for our walkers, young children, and stroller pushers. Every individual who registers will recieve a “Hope For Chance 2nd Annual Run For Hope” decal (examples of which will come soon!) and the winner will recieve a free t-shirt and trophy. Runners/Walkers will also be assigned the name of a baby who lost their life to SIDS and will run or walk in their honor.* There will also be a prize for our runner or walker who has the best “SIDS Awareness” or Pink and Blue outfit.
We will be opening up early registration in March 1, 2015 until April 14, and regular registration going from April 15 until the day of the run.
We will also have shirts for the run for sale at the event (examples of last years shirt can be found in the photos!) along with other SIDS Awareness items! We are hoping to have bigger donators this year and vendors at the run, so if you are a company owner or vendor who would like to attend, please contact us for information!
There will be bounce houses, balloons, music and face paintings for the kids. Also we are attempting to get EMTs to provide Infant CPR classes, and boothes with different information about SIDS, safe sleeping practices, ongoing research, and others as they come up. The awareness event will be going from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. with registration for the run beginning at 1 p.m. and the run beginning about 3 p.m. and the fun walk starting shortly after. We are hoping for an even bigger crowd this year so please share with your friends and help support SIDS awareness and get a good workout!
*Mothers of infants who passed away from SIDS may include their Angel’s name to us through PM. By sending your child’s name you are allowing us to use their name during the run, and in photos that will be added to the website.
**If you are a mother who would like their Angel’s name added to the Hope For Chance 2nd Annual “Run For Hope” Banner, please contact me. There will be a small donation necessary for printing purposes.
