Those who know me, know that I am very active in my girls school. Not only am I a member of the PTO, but I also actively volunteer on a daily in one of the first grade classrooms.
A few weeks ago, we had a tragedy strike one of the teachers. Sharon Clark, was notified that there was an emergency happening with her 9 month old son Josiah, who was at the sitters house, just around the block from the school.
She left the school immediately on foot to run over, only to find the ambulance had left and taken her son to the hospital. While checking on Josiah during his nap, he was found not breathing and unresponsive.
Unfortunately, every parents nightmare had happened to Sharron. Josiah had passed away at the hospital, they could not revive him.
I remember as a parent to a young baby SIDS is always a huge worry when they’re so young, this is what was ruled as the cause of death of Josiah Clark.
In honor of Josiah and to gather the community together to help Sharron and her family with costs, the PTO has teamed up with Z Fit Factory Zumba Instructors, Liz Davis and Christy Makulinski to put together a Zumbathon this Sunday June 9th at 1:00pm.
Here are the details:
Sunday, June 9th from 1-3pm, The Z Fit Factory is hosting a benefit for the Josiah Clark Memorial Fund. His mother, Toledo Public Schools teacher, Sharon Clark, suffered the unimaginable loss of her precious 9 month old baby, Josiah, to SIDS while she was at work on May 8th. No family is ever prepared for such a tragic event. Let’s pull our fabulous Zumba community together to honor Baby Josiah.
