Approximately 200 people were in attendance for educational sessions, skating, a resource fair, lunch and the Baby Buggy Walk.

Raising awareness about infant mortality is central to the purpose of the event and the work of MomsFirst. T-shirts were provided to all attendees with the hope of serving as a conversation starter about saving our babies and the work of MomsFirst.
