Evie’s Run – 5K for Pregnancy and Infant Loss

In honor of Pregnancy and Infant Awareness month in October, Hart County High School FBLA is hosting the 2nd Annual Evie’s Run for Pregnancy and Infant Loss, a 5K fundraiser, on October 21, 2017. The race begins at 8:30 am at the Hart County Middle School track.

The race is in memory of Evie List, daughter of HCHS Business Education teacher, Bray List, and her husband, David. It is estimated that 3,500 deaths per year in the US are attributed to Sudden Unexplained Infant Deaths (SUID) and that approximately 1 in 5 women experience a miscarriage. Also, one in every 160 pregnancies end with 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,” said Mrs. List. “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.”

All proceeds from Evie’s Run will be given to the CJ First Candle and The March of Dimes. These organizations help with research, awareness, and grief and bereavement for families affected by this horrible tragedy.
