2018 TEAM SCH CHICAGO HALF MARATHON & 5K
EVENT DATE: Sep 23, 2018
Through Team SCH, supporters raise funds for Swedish Covenant Hospital on behalf of their participation in an endurance event, such as a triathlon, half marathon or 5K. Since the program started in 2015, more than 150 athletes have raised nearly $50,000 to benefit Swedish Covenant Hospital.
Funds from Team SCH 2018 will support the Safe Sleep Initiative at Swedish Covenant Hospital. Each year, more than 2,000 babies are born in Swedish Covenant Hospital’s Family Birthing Center. In order to better educate new parents on actions they can take in order to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and other sleep related causes of infant death, Swedish Covenant Hospital launched the Safe Sleep Initiative. Donations to Team SCH will help fund resources for new parents, including co-sleepers and sleep sacks, as well as education materials.
