SIDS Stampede – Sunday 27th August 2017



The SIDS Stampede is a running Festival set in the beautiful Hawkesbury area. It consists of 4 events, a Half Marathon a 10km run, a 5km run and 5km friends and family walk. The SIDS Stampede is held annually, this year being 27th August 2017.

To date from our last four events we raised over $100,000.  Last event we over had 640 people participate, 35 volunteers and the Hawkesbury community backing us the entire way.

All money entries and money raised will go directly to the SIDS and Sleep Apnoea Research Department at The Children’s Hospital Westmead. Our aim is to help support scientists in their search for a trigger and eventually, a cure, for these terrible problems.

SIDS claims the lives of approximately 100 infants in Australia every year. Sleep Apnoea is a condition that affects up to 3 of every 100 (3%) of infants in Australia. Although remarkable progress has been made in reducing the incidence of SIDS in the last 20 years, many questions remain unanswered. The SIDS and Sleep Apnoea Research Unit at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead is working to find answers and relies on community support to continue their important work. The SIDS and Sleep Apnoea Research Department at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, and its laboratory at The University of Sydney, is the only one in Australia currently performing neuro-pathological studies aimed at identifying differences in brain markers in infants who have died suddenly, to identify differences between SIDS and non-SIDS cases
