Part of the procceds from Alexander’s Run will be used to support the Alexander Michael Dodson Memorial Scholarship Fund

During the summer of 2010, funds from Alexander’s Scholarship Fund were able to help send ten Trenton students to Stuart Country Day Summer Stars. The 4-week camp is open to second to sixth graders and includes instruction on the humanities, science and math. The Summer Stars program is only open to Trenton residents and is designed to strengthen Stuart's ties with the community through service to children. 

“Summer Stars offers such an important outlet for children every summer.  From musical instruction to academic enrichment, it provides a strong foundation for the school year. We were so pleased and overwhelmed that the Alexander Michael Dodson Memorial Scholarship Fund chose to support the Summer Stars program this year." said Dr. Patty Fagin, new Head of School at Stuart Country Day School.   "The support of the Fund allowed 10 children to experience a summer filled with enriching activities.” 


Sudden Unexplained Death In Childhood (SUDC) is the sudden and unexpected death of a child over the age of 12 months, which remains unexplained after a thorough case investigation is conducted.

Soon after  Alexander passed, we found out about the SUDC Program.  Being able to talk to others who had experienced SUDC helped us not feel so alone. 

The SUDC Program was created in 2001 as part of the CJ Foundation for SIDS to provide support services to families affected by SUDC and support medical research searching for answers to SUDC.  They have made progress over the years, but there is still work to be done.
