Every year in Canada, 250 apparently healthy infants die suddenly and unexpectedly, 2,800 are stillborn and almost 80,000 are lost to miscarriage. Regardless of how these children died, each is loved and celebrated. Support Team Baby’s Breath, running in memory of our children, at the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend on May 25 and 26, 2013!
There are two ways you can support CFSID in the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend!
You can support our runners by visiting their online giving pages below, contributing to them, and encouraging your friends and family to support them as well!

Running the half marathon in May
in memory of my baby girl... Abby.
Through her life and death,
she shows me every day
what it means to have courage.
Why I run...
To honour my son Keegan's memory.
To empower others, in moving forward.
To give hope, by raising funds and awareness
so all babies can celebrate 1st birthdays.
By giving, you help end sudden,
unexpected, infant deaths.
