The Cedartown City Commission approved an annual event that returns to the sidewalks and streets of Main Street later this month, and encouraged local residents to show their support for finding out why Sudden Infant Death Syndrome occurs.
The annual A Walk for Hope is set to return to downtown Cedartown this coming Sunday, October 23, 2022 after Cedartown Commissioners voted on October 11 to give the go-ahead for the event to take over Main Street for a short time starting at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday.
The walk honors Junior, son of Niedra Chubb who passed away from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Since then, Chubb has organized the annual walk – now in its fourth year – to help raise awareness for the families who suffer from tragic losses, and to raise money for research on why SIDS happens, and how to prevent its further taking the lives of infants far too soon in life.
Walkers are asked to gather ahead of the 2:30 p.m. start. A ceremony will follow in downtown Cedartown at Holloway Park.
