About This Activity

Join us for the 9th annual “Run for the Angels Fun Run presented by Idaho Central Credit Union”(run, jog, or however you roll)! You can also join us VIRUTALLY! Our walk is to join together and remember all children who have died suddenly and unexpectedly, raise awareness of pregnancy, infant and child loss and provide a day to enjoy your family and friends. All proceeds benefit the emotional support programs of Northwest Infant Survival and SIDS Alliance. 

To join virtually, register as you would if you were joining us in person and we will mail your shirts to you! We encourage you to post your photos on our Facebook page!

Be sure to arrive at noon and visit our sponsor booths between 12 PM and 2 pm.  An emotional support area complete with stations where you can create a luminary will also be available at this time. We usually have face painting, pizza and jump houses but due to physical distancing, we are not able to do this. We do hope everything will be back to normal next year :-)

The silent auction will be online this year! This is a great way to support NISSA and bring home a fun auction item! We will email out link when it's available. If you would like to donate an auction item, email Andrea at
