The Iowa SIDS Foundation’s 20th Anniversary Walk for the Future will be held on Saturday, August 24, 2019 in seven cities across the state of Iowa. This family friendly event offers SIDS and SUID families an opportunity to celebrate the lives of their baby while raising awareness for sudden unexpected sleep related infant deaths. As the nonprofit’s primary fundraiser, the local Walk will be held at Veteran’s Memorial Park, 1645 23rd Street. The Bettendorf Walk will begin at 10:00 am, with on-site registration beginning at 9:00 am. Pre-registration is available at www.iowasids.org through August 12th. Following the Walk, participants can enjoy refreshments, a raffle, and face painting.
Proceeds from the “Walk for the Future” provide safe sleep education to Iowa parents, healthcare and childcare providers, as well as bereavement support to Iowans impacted by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and unexplained sleep related infant deaths.
The Iowa Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Foundation is a statewide non-profit 501c3 health organization dedicated to providing emotional support to SIDS and SUID families, educating professionals and the general public about SIDS, and funding medical research into the causes of unexpected infant sleep related deaths.
