Please join the Friends of Akron Children’s Hospital for the 54th annual Harness Race Rally. Over the past 53 years, we have raised over $3 million to benefit Akron Children’s Hospital. Funds raised this year will benefit both the Hospital’s Safe Sleep Initiative and the FCLC Autism Preschool.
Safe Sleep Initiative addresses the public health issue of sleep-related deaths among infants. According to the Ohio Department of Health, every week, three babies in Ohio die as a result of being in an unsafe environment. Low-income, at risk parents will be provided with training, educational materials, and Safe Sleep kits through the agencies partnering with Akron Children’s Hospital and the Safe Sleep Initiative.
Through the FCLC Autism Preschool, the Family Child Learning Center at Akron Children’s Hospital provides family-centered developmental services and conducts research on the effectiveness of practices and service models for promoting the development of young children.For more information, contact:
