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/awareness 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. Proceeds from the event will support Inland Northwest SIDS Foundation’s grief support and safe infant sleep education program in the greater Boise area.
This Jordan’s Run event will consist of a variety of family day activities including games, silent auction, face painting, jump houses, photobooth, luminary station and much more!

“A year ago when my friend Trevor Loucks approached me about writing a song in honor of Jordan, I had no idea it would turn out like this. I am amazed by his talent and humbled by his thoughtfulness. The music and video so beautifully depict loss, the celebration of life and the hope of the future. This song is not only a beautiful tribute to my son, but to all the children we have lost to SIDS & SUDC. Please watch and share.” –Candi Zappia
