A MESSAGE FROM First Candle

We're Running For Their Lives

First Candle is proud to be an official charity partner of the 2021 TCS New York City Marathon!  We are committed to ending SIDS and other sleep-related infant deaths, while also providing bereavement support to families who have experienced a tragic loss.

 

Did you know that every year approximately 3,600 babies die from SIDS and other sleep-related infant deaths?

 

With your donation we can educate families to follow safe sleep guidelines and dramatically reduce this statistic.  Our Straight Talk for Infant Safe Sleep training educates nurses, social workers and caregivers on the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Safe Sleep Guidelines, which can reduce the death rate by 50%.  We also provide a 24hr grief line, online support groups and peer support volunteers to help grieving families who have lost a baby. 

 

We envision a day where every baby can reach his or her first birthday and until then we will continue to educate and support safe sleep for all babies.
