1300 867 Cribs for Kids

DATE: Fall 2020
LOCATION:  810 River Ave Pittsburgh, PA 15212
TIME: 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM
REGISTRATION OPENS: July 2020

Spend a special day walking along the North Shore Trail in memory and celebration of the infants who left us too soon. Join us as we play fun games, eat good food, and spend time with great people who come together to reach a common goal, to raise awareness of and eliminate infant sleep-related deaths.

Anyone who has experienced infant loss, miscarriage, or stillbirth is welcome to join us in the day’s activities. We encourage everyone to gather friends and family members to join us in remembrance of these babies and help us to raise awareness of our cause.

All money raised during this event supports our Cribs for Kids® program to help us continue our life-saving mission of helping every baby sleep safer. Every $50 raised provides a safe sleeping environment for a family in need.

Due to COVID19 and concerns for people’s safety, we have decided to host the 12th Annual Breath of Life Stroll virtually throughout the month of October.
