The 4th annual Safe Sleep Awareness Walk will be October 6 in Sulphur at the Heritage Square. Called the Stroll and Roll, it is to raise money to help new parents learn about the safe ways to put a newborn to sleep in their crib. The even was started in the memory of Kaden Reed. Kaden lost his life while in the hands of a caregiver. Kaden's parents want other parents to learn from this tragedy so that they don't have to suffer what they went through by losing a child.

The money collected from the event will go towards funding classes to teach new parents about safer sleeping, cribs that promote safer sleeping, and other supplies for the classes and new parents.

On October 6, there will be live entertainment from Charlie Wayne, food vendors, raffles, and a benefit ride that will go and deliver items collected to local hospitals and facilities. If you would like to participate, become a sponsor, or be a vendor, you can contact them through their Facebook Page or on their Website as well.

If you don't want to participate in the ride or the walk/run, you are still invited to come out and enjoy the activities throughout the day.
