SR1 has an established partnership with the Mississippi SIDS & Infant Safety Alliance. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the leading cause of death among infants aged 1-12 months. To help raise awareness of this issue, each year, SR1 staff, scholars, and parents/guardians volunteer with the Mississippi SIDS & Infant Safety Alliance at their annual Walk for Babies/Hunter’s Legacy 5K Run to End SIDS.

This volunteer opportunity not only raises awareness for our student scholars and families who participate, but also helps our students become aware of different issues surrounding their community and how small steps can lead to a larger impact within their environment.
