SUDC Awareness Month

Thank you for Supporting SUDC Awareness Month 2022!

SUDC Awareness Month 2022 was an astounding success!

Some of our highlights include:

  • Our supporters participated in weekly activities to raise awareness throughout the month – shining a light on SUDC, wearing their hearts on their sleeves, spreading kindness, and taking strides for awareness.
  • We sent over 600 free awareness kits to our supporters all over the world to help mark the month.
  • SUDC Awareness Month was honored through 47 U.S. state proclamations and 1 House resolution. You can learn more here.
  • The Los Angeles Dodgers wore specially-designed SUDC Foundation patches on their uniforms during a spring training game and shared some important information about #SUDCAwareness Month during the television broadcast. 
  • Our supporters walked, ran, rolled and rode over 12,000 miles for our Stride for SUDC Awareness Challenge. See below for our leaderboard!

From the bottom of our hearts, we offer our gratitude to everyone who helped us honor SUDC Awareness Month. Your efforts have helped us promote awareness, advocate for research, and support those affected by sudden unexpected or unexplained death in childhood.

We’ll see you next year!
