‘Soles for SIDS’ 5k Run/Walk Fundraiser to Be Held at Trent ISD May 18th
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is a mystery that leaves more questions than answers. While SIDS baffles doctors and devastates parents of young children, research is being done and information is being gathered to find out why this happens. In a fundraiser coming up May 18th at Trent ISD, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Dr. Hannah Kinney at Boston Children’s Hospital. Dr. Kinney’s research is helping lead the way in finding a reason and a cure for SIDS.
Whether you or someone you know has been affected by SIDS, or are simply someone who wants to get answers as to why Sudden Infant Death Syndrome happens, you should try to attend. Along with the run/walk, there a presentation to help inform attendees, and this is a great opportunity to network with parents and other people affected by SIDS.

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is mysteriously defined as the sudden death of an infant under one year of age which remains unexplained after a thorough case investigation, including performance of a complete autopsy, examination of the death scene, and review of the clinical history.
In a typical situation parents check on their supposedly sleeping infant to find him or her dead. This is the worst tragedy parents can face, a tragedy which leaves them with a sadness and a feeling of vulnerability that lasts throughout their lives. Since medicine can not tell them why their baby died, they blame themselves and often other innocent people. Their lives and those around them are changed forever.
