S.I.D.S. Awareness Run in Longview

LONGVIEW (KYTX) -  The 2nd Annual S.I.D.S. Awareness Run took place in Longview Saturday.   The race aims to raise awareness for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, the leading cause of death of children under the age of one.  Paige Hipp's son died of SIDS in 2009, inspiring her to start this Glow in the Dark 5K. She says the run is not only meant to raise awareness but also, to honor her son.

"Just letting people know that it's out there. I know people here about it, but don't really care until it happens to someone they know. When you have babies look into it. Make sure you can do everything you can to prevent it." - Paige Hipp, Race Organizer

Money raised from the race will be donated to sids research.
