ORGANIZER: The CJ Foundation for SIDS, Inc.
The brightest spirit I have ever known, my beloved nephew, Maxwell Judah Leviss, died most unexpectedly, on July 21, 2011, at the age of 9 months. Maxie’s sudden death sent shockwaves through the many lives he touched in his much too short time on earth; it taught all of us the real meaning of heart-wrenching sadness. We are determined to help ensure that one day soon, we will understand what SIDS is so that other families will not have to experience this kind of loss.
I am running the 2017 NYC marathon for Maxie and every child whose life has ended way too soon. Please consider supporting me and CJ First Candle in Maxie's 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.
