Run and Play for Ariana Mae

Home Page

We're going Under the Sea for the 3rd Annual Run and Play for Ariana Mae, August 17th, 2013 at Fitzgerald Park in Grand Ledge, MI. The entire family will enjoy a 5K Run/Walk, a crazy, messy obstacle course for kids, games, raffles, live entertainment, food and more!  Registration begins at 7:30 am.  Run starts at 9:00 am.  Registration is NOT required for participation in the after race festivities.  Everyone is welcome! Over the past 2 years, Run and Play for Ariana Mae has raised over $16,000 for the SUDC Program and built a new toddler play structure at Fitzgerald Park in Grand Ledge!

We are hosting this event in honor of our daughter, Ariana Mae Lusis. Ariana was a happy, healthy, and vibrant 21 month old girl who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly during a nap on November 30, 2010.  We were given little explanation as to what took our daughter's life. All proceeds will benefit the Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC) program, a cousin of SIDS that affects children after their first birthday.  

The SUDC Program is part of the CJ Foundation for SIDS, a national non-profit organization leading the fight against SIDS and SUDC.
