The Iowa SIDS Foundation announces registration for the 16th annual Iowa SIDS Foundation Walk for the Future. Held on Aug. 22, the Ankeny Walk is the closest location to this area. It begins at Wagner Park Bandshell at 9:30 a.m. (registration starts at 8:15).

Participants can register online or request a registration form at www.iowasids.org or by calling 866-480-4741. Participants may also register in person on the day of the walk.

The purpose of the walk is to raise awareness about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome while raising funds for the Iowa SIDS Foundation. SIDS is the sudden, unexpected and unexplained death of an otherwise healthy infant up to the age of one year. The annual walk is family-oriented, and celebrates and remembers those babies who died from this disease.
