Bella Rose Strides for Babies 5K & Fun Run

  • 201 Soccer Park Drive Cary, NC, 27511 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Bella Rose Strides for Babies 5K is a run/walk with proceeds benefiting First Candle held every August at the Wake Med Soccer Park in Cary, NC in honor of Bella Rose Diaz.

In May of 2011, tragedy struck the Carolina Family Practice and Sports Medicine family when Amy Diaz, one of our beloved employees, suffered the heartbreaking loss of her beautiful and charismatic baby daughter Bella Rose to the dreadful mystery that is Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or SIDS. To honor her, Carolina Family Practice and Sports Medicine worked first with the CJ Foundation for SIDS, and now First Candle to organize the Bella Rose Strides for Babies 5K. In 6 years, the event has raised over $140,000 for the cause. We hope to have another great event this year further helping to promote awareness and fund research for SIDS.
