A Divine Run, 5k Run/Walk
We hosted our 7th biennial Divine Run on July 18th 2018 at the Kansas Speedway. A Divine Run has raised money to support SIDS Resources, which was renamed Infant Loss Resources recently. The organization provides support for bereaved families and educates professionals in the community about safe infant care practices. We have hosted over 2000 participants over the last 13 years and have appreciated every single one!
Devon Hance had a completely healthy four-month-old checkup in late November. Exactly one week later, he was found dead in his crib. The cause of death was determined to be Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
Perhaps every parent’s worst nightmare is to put a healthy baby down to sleep and to discover he has died unexpectedly.
Approximately 2,500 babies die annually in the United States from SIDS.
In the Kansas City metropolitan area, 30-35 infants die each year from SIDS.
