Funds raised by the race will assist a team of doctors at the UVA Research Hospital in their efforts to prepare a sample study to present to the National Institute of Health for a large-scale grant. Additionally, the funds raised will go to support efforts to re-launch the Back to Sleep Campaign and raise infant sleep safety awareness with the hope of preventing environmental risks which contribute to the sudden and unexpected death of infants.
