After five successful years, we held our final Jordan’s Ride event on Sunday, September 11th 2016. The decision to end the ride was bittersweet but we continue to advocate for SUDC & SIDS research and grief support services. After hearing that Jordan’s Ride was concluding, Inland Northwest SIDS Foundation graciously offered to continue our efforts in the Treasure Valley through a new community fundraising event called Jordan’s Run.
Jordan’s Run is a family friendly 5k run/walk that will be held on Saturday, October 28th at the Julius M Kleiner Park in Meridian, ID. All proceeds benefit the education and grief support programs of the Inland Northwest SIDS Foundation and their outreach efforts throughout Idaho.
This Jordan’s Run event will consist of a variety of family day activities including games, face painting, jump houses, photobooth, luminary station and much more!
- Registration & Silent Auction Opens – 12:00 pm
- Family Day / Kids Corner – 12:00-2:00 pm
- Opening & Remembrance Ceremony – 2:00 pm
- Jordan’s Run 5K Begins! – 2:30 pm

Words can’t effectively express how much this ride has meant to us personally as well as those in the community who have been touched by SIDS & SUDC. It has been an honor bringing awareness to these conditions and actively working towards eliminating them. We appreciate your support in this mission and hope it will continue as it is imperative to funding the research needed to gain the answers so many parents are desperate for.
Through both large and small donations our 2016 ride raised a total of $5,905 bringing our five year grand total to $24,455!!
We are humbled by the generosity and support we have received over these past five years. These donations have provided resources for grieving families, funded research and provided education on safe sleep practices for infants.
On behalf of my family and the thousands of other families impacted by the loss of a child to SIDS or SUDC, thank you!
