A quilting journey that detours for other activities that captivate and inspire.
Friday, October 18, 2013
Tomorrow morning I will participate in "The Chase." It is a 5k in memory of a sweet little boy, Chase Austin Ruffner, who passed away from SIDS. Money raised will go to an organization called First Candle. A bit about them:
HELPING BABIES SURVIVE AND THRIVE
First Candle is a leading national nonprofit organization dedicated to safe pregnancies and the survival of babies through the first years of life. Current priorities are to eliminate Stillbirth, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and other Sudden Unexpected Infant Deaths (SUID) with programs of research, education and advocacy. We also provide compassionate grief support to all those affected by the death of a baby through a dedicated crisis hotline at 800.221.7437.
I made this quilt for Chase's Momma in 2012 out of his little clothes.
