ORGANIZER: The CJ Foundation for SIDS, Inc.
On June 17, 2010 I became a father for the first time to my daughter Kaiya Rae. Exactly 5 months later on November17, 2010 we had to say good bye. Ever since that day my family and I have been trying to help make sure no other parents have to go through what we went through. I will be running in her honor and memory.
CJ Foundation for SIDS is now CJ First Candle! Each year in the United States, over 4,000 babies die from SIDS and SUID, and over 24,000 babies are delivered stillborn. SIDS is the leading cause of death among babies between 1 month and 1 year of age. 100% of the proceeds from the TCS New York City Marathon Charity Program will benefit our mission of eliminating SIDS, SUID, and Stillbirth through education, advocacy, and research while providing compassionate support to bereaved families.
