Iowa’s 12th Annual Sudden Infant Death Syndrome “Walk for the Future” will take place in Washington and six other Iowa communities Saturday.  Tony and Tricia Lipski are the parents of a child that died of SIDS, and have participated in the event for the last four years.

Tricia Lipski says registration begins at 8:30 am followed by a balloon launch in memory of children lost to SIDS, with the walk beginning at 9:30.

She says the proceeds from this event will go toward research to find the causes of SIDS and education the public about it.
