About Spring for SIDS
Spring-for-SIDS is a national campaign to raise awareness about sudden infant death and to raise funds for research. Organizations (companies, schools, churches, family groups, hospitals, restaurants, gyms, associations, stores) across the country band together to join the fight against sudden infant death by encouraging their employees, students, members, customers and friends to participate in Spring-for-SIDS day.
Founded in 1983, the American SIDS Institute, a national nonprofit health care organization, is dedicated to the prevention of sudden infant death and the promotion of infant health through an aggressive, comprehensive nationwide program of:
- Research about both the cause of sudden infant death and methods of prevention.
- Education about prevention methods for the public and medical community.
- Family Support by providing answers to parents’ questions in a straightforward and sensitive manner.
Spring-for-SIDS strives to provide awareness about sudden infant death and raise funds for research into medical causes.
Teams around the country hold individual sudden infant death awareness events & fundraisers. Teams will feel connected to others from all around as events are held for a common cause.
