Strollin' to Fight SIDS is a 5K "stroll" to raise awareness about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and Other Sleep-related Infant Death and raise funds for research. Held in memory of Anneliese, it is an opportunity for families who have experienced this nightmare to share their stories and celebrate the life of their child. It is an opportunity for the community to come together to laugh, stroll, remember the lives of these children, learn more about SIDS and Other Sleep-related Infant Death, and raise funds for research. The ulitmate goal is to find the cause(s) of SIDS and prevent SIDS from ever touching another family.

About Anneliese

On October 27, 2012, our family experienced a tragedy that changed us forever. Our third daughter, our beautiful 4-month old Anneliese Marie, was stolen from us by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) during an afternoon nap. She was such a happy baby who rarely cried, She was already working on babbling and wanted so desperately to talk with her big sisters. Her smile was big and bright, and all who saw her fell in love.

Although we miss Anneliese every day, we are thankful for the time we had with her. We are determined that her life will mean more than just her death. With the assistance of our friend, we started Strollin' to Fight SIDS to support the CJ Foundation for SIDS and SIDS research. We had to make a difference in her name, so that one day no one else will know this pain.

She may be gone but she will never be forgotten.
