In honor of National Infant Mortality Awareness Month, MomsFirst hosted the 2016 Baby Buggy Walk at Zelma George Recreation Center. Approximately 200 people were in attendance for educational sessions, skating, a resource fair, lunch and the Baby Buggy Walk. Information on health, breastfeeding and safe sleep was provided, as well as helpful information from a variety of community organizations. A delicious lunch was provided and prizes were raffled off.
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.
