October is SIDS, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month

Currently, cause of SIDS is unknown.
2nd Annual SIDS Run/Walk for Tighe
We are hosting a charity 5k walk/run to raise money and awareness for the Robert's Program and the SIDS Research Lab at Boston Children’s Hospital. The quest to find a cause and prevent SIDS is one that is near and dear to us as our infant son Tighe was taken too soon at the age of 4 months. Please support our fundraiser by participating in our 5k and raising money to help continue the research towards preventing such future tragedies.
Tighe was a very content, smiley, happy, and 100% perfectly healthy baby boy. On August 10, 2015 at 4 months old, we lost him to SIDS. Tighe was so loved, he was our world. We are determined to try and turn this devastating experience into something positive in his name. Please come and show your support for Tighe or someone you know who’s been touched by an infant death.
