Challenges include physical challenges, fundraising goals, and of course, taking steps to promote safe sleep. There are even challenges for our youngest supporters! So whether you choose to complete a 5k, or you choose to complete the other challenges from our fun list, you can be part of the action!!!!
WHY A SAFE SLEEP CHALLENGE?
Many of you know, October is Safe Sleep Awareness month. Sudden Infant Death Services of Illinois, Inc. gets pretty busy around October time. We usually have a #SafeSleep social media challenge and plan for a big in person event in October to raise awareness for safe sleep practices. Although we have come a long way of lowering infant mortality rates, babies still continue to die due to unsafe sleep conditions. Part of our mission is to educate all of our new parents and spread awareness on social media. Our Safe Sleep Challenge starts in September so we can really push the "safe sleep message" and get all of our supporters a chance to be part of the action! This year, we added challenges to help EVERYONE on your team get involved! So whether you share with us your "safe crib" at home, you share a picture of your little one wearing their favorite sleep sack, or you share the badges you earn through other various activities and fundraising goals, you help spread the word! EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS!
