5K Walk/Run for HIE Awareness, and also in memory of sweet Jackson Peter Ward.
Jackson was born February 21st, 2019 to Codi Brandt and Shelby Ward. Shortly after birth he was life-flighted to Sacred Heart in Spokane where he was diagnosed with severe HIE after undergoing cooling protocol. After MRI's and EEG's, Jackson's results were devastating, and Codi and Shelby had to make the hardest decision a parent would ever have to make. After 10 days of life, Jackson passed away on March 3rd.
Codi and Shelby want the world to know what HIE (Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy) is, and to help give back to the hospital that got them their 10 days with their son.
Funds will be going back to the "NICU Survival Kits" they are making for Sacred Heart's NICU and parents that end up there in complete shock. The kits for moms include general necessities after having a baby, shampoo, toothbrushes, hard candies, etc. They are also making kits for fathers as well.

WE HAVE BEEN TRYING TO FINALIZE PLANS FOR OUR HIE AWARENESS WALK THIS YEAR AND WE HAVE HAD MANY DISCUSSIONS ON HOW TO BEST PLAN THE WALK WITH THE REALITY THAT IS COVID-19.
AS MUCH AS WE WANT TO HAVE OUR WALK THIS YEAR IN PERSON, WE DO NOT WANT ANYONE GETTING SICK AT OUR EVENT AND HAVE MADE THE DIFFICULT DECISION TO MAKE OUR WALK A VIRTUAL WALK THIS YEAR RATHER THAN HAVE IT IN PERSON.
WE WILL STILL BE SENDING OUT MERCHANDISE THAT WOULD HAVE GONE WITH THE WALK THIS YEAR - THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
