_ The 2019 Evie's Run for Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness:
October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month, and HCHS FBLA honors this by hosting Evie's Run for Pregnancy and Infant Loss, a 5K fundraiser. We will be giving ALL proceeds to First Candle and The March of Dimes. Both organizations help with research, awareness, and grief and bereavement for families affected by this horrible tragedy.
This race is in memory of Evie List, daughter of HCHS Business Ed teacher Bray List and her husband David. It's estimated that 3,500 deaths per year in the US are attributed to SUID (Sudden Unexplained Infant Deaths) and that approximately 1 in 5 women experience a miscarriage. Also, one in every 160 pregnancies end in a stillbirth. We believe this is a way for our babies to live on and make a difference in the lives and families of other children. Please consider running with us, or providing donations. We want every dollar we can get to donate and prevent another family from having to go through this tragedy
