Little Feet for Safe Sleep Virtual 5K/10K Run/Walk 2020
Mississippi SIDS & Infant Safety Alliance and our title sponsor, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Mississippi, will host the Little Feet for Safe Sleep Virtual 5K/10K Run/Walk the entire month of August 2020.
This virtual walk/run will take place wherever and whenever the participant decides. It can be at home, on a trail, any road, or treadmill, even in another state! You can run your own race, at your own pace, and time yourself. You can run or walk with friends or by yourself. When you finish your race, come back to our website and submit your time, who you are honoring with your race, and your chosen distance.
We encourage you to walk or run in memory or honor of a loved one. We also want you to send us pictures of you walking or running, your time, and who you are honoring, and we will share it on our social media sites.
Registration is $35.00 and includes a medal. There is no registration deadline. The race runs from August 1, 2020 – August 31, 2020. Medals will be mailed out after August 31st.
This event will benefit the Mississippi SIDS & Infant Safety Alliance to help continue our educational programs and outreach. Our mission, even during this Covid-19 pandemic, is to make sure that our babies are sleeping safely, that our families and infant caregivers are receiving the much needed education on SIDS/SUID Risk Reduction, and how to provide a Safe Sleep environment. We also continue to provide bereavement support for families and caregivers that have experienced the loss of an infant.
