Giving Back/Bobbie Cohlan/Baby Loss Awareness Ride 10/1/17

October is Pregnancy and Baby Loss Awareness Month .  To remember the babies sadly gone too soon we will be riding in the studio on October 1 at 9:30 .  Sadly miscarriage, stillbirth and baby loss has affected many of our Peloton families, either personally or through family and friends. 
 
DID YOU KNOW:
– One in four pregnancies ends in the loss of a baby .
-The loss of a child is recognized as the most intense cause of grief.
-Parents never “get over” the loss of a child- no matter what the age
-Parents experiencing grief without supportive care can have debilitating consequences such as PSTD, depression and anxiety that could further result in job loss, divorce, difficultes in daily living, or impediments with parenting of living children.
-The loss of a child stays with a family forever, but the emotional and physical impacts are often challenging for others to truly understand. Having support through grief is paramount to recovery.
-Raising awareness is the first step to accessing help and also to bring awareness to the need for research to find the ways to lower the alarming statistics.
For all these reasons and more our family founded and is active in the Star Legacy Foundation New York Metro Chapter. (serving NYC, Long Island, northern New Jersey, Westchester County and Fairfield County,Ct) To learn about this premier baby loss charity and see if there is a chapter near you go to the website at starlegacyfoundation.org

This event is not a fundraiser but merely a way to bring awareness to the world of baby loss in the hopes that more awareness will lead to better care and education for families and professionals, as well as research to lower the incidence.

Of course if you would like to consider a donation or learn more about the leading non profit baby loss charity Star Legacy Foundation, just click on this the website starlegacyfoundation.org
If you will be riding in the studio that morning please let us know. We would love to support each other.   I will provide you with a racer back performance tank top if I hear from you in time to order.
