We know there are a ton of people working hard to get people signed up for the SIDS 5k. We will do our best to keep this page updated so you can check our progress. Thanks for all you're doing to support the cause!

|Registrations To-Date||Registration Goal||How Close Are We to Goal?||Days Until Event|
As you can see in the graph below, we have reached a hard point in our registration count. In order to reach our goal, we'll have to start pulling ahead... and fast! We really need your help and support in spreading awareness of this great event.
|Sleep in Tickets To-Date||Number of Donations To-Date||Amount of Donations Received|
The intent of Sleep-in Tickets is to give those who are unable to attend the opportunity to still support the event, including getting an event t-shirt. We also provide the opportunity to make a donation in place of or in addition to registering for the event. For comparison purposes, last year 24 people chose to do a Sleep-in Ticket, and 73 people made donations totaling $6,575.
It appears this year’s girl-to-guy ratio is tracking similar to previous years, but the guys may be making a break for it! Keep it up, gentleman, and show your support for a SIDS Free Future.
Our event is open to both runners and walkers, and we typically get a good mix of both. Note that this year we expect more runners than in years past, and a large uptick in runner registrations during the last two weeks. Know someone who runs? Tell'em about our event!
This is not something we track very closely because we want to afford people their privacy. So we try to estimate the number of families simply based on the different names of children lost to SIDS (or related SUID) that some people choose to share when they register.
|Estimated # of SIDS Families Represented at SIDS 5K||8||12||28||48||32|
As someone who has lost a child, it does feel good to see so many local families come together in a show of solidarity and support for this important cause.
|Support Medical Research||17.9%||20.7%||19.9%|
|Help Local Families||16.5%||17.0%||19.9%|
|Did Not Answer||0.2%||0.2%||6.6%|
It is important to us to provide participants an opportunity to direct where the proceeds from our event are invested. It is definitely helpful to get this type of feedback from those who entrust their dollars with us.
