SIDS WALK in Camarillo
Yesterday I participated in the 2nd Annual Josephine DeMello SIDS Foundation 5K run/walk. The turn-out for this event was incredible...over 350 walkers and runners joined in to raise money for this great cause!! During the run some of the young children held signs for their siblings who had unfortunately been lost to SIDS. I met some of the most resilient people and heard so many touching stories from families who have lost children due to this mysterious killer. Yolanda DeMello, the founder of the SIDS organization, recognized all of the first responders who tried to revive her daughter on that unforgettable day 2 years ago. The awards ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt with a release of doves at the end.
