Tragically, on November 15, 2015, I lost my 2 month old niece as a result of sudden unexpected death syndrome. The heartbreak that my family and I felt was indescribable. I am running in memory of my beautiful niece Kayla Brooke to not only honor her but, to also raise awareness of this heart wrenching form of loss that affects many more people than we realize. I want to try and help to make sure that no other families feel the devastation that my family feels every single day. Please support me helping to keep Kayla's precious memory alive by donating to CJ First Candle.
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.
