The Iowa SIDS Foundation is pleased to share that registration for the 16th annual Iowa SIDS Foundation Walk for the Future will be held Saturday, August 22, 2015 in eight cities across Iowa, including Bettendorf, IA. Participants can register on line or request a registration form at www.iowasids.org or by calling 866-480-4741. Participants may also register in person on the day of the walk. The 2015 walk celebrates 16 years of walking and fundraising to raise awareness for SIDS and SUID in Iowa.
The purpose of the walk is to raise awareness about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and SUID while raising funds for the Iowa SIDS Foundation. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome is the sudden, unexpected and unexplained death of an otherwise healthy infant up to the age of one year. Annually, our Foundation responds to 40-45 sleep related infant deaths.
The annual walk is a family orientated event for SIDS and SUID families to celebrate and remember those babies that died unexpectedly during sleep, and for community members to show their support.
The Bettendorf walk will be held at Veteran's Memorial Park, with registration beginning at 8:30 and the walk beginning at 9:30. Activities include a family walk, a raffle, a balloon release, refreshments, and a visit from Rascal the River Bandit.
