7th Annual Walk A Mile to Save Our Babies
In the most recently reported data, 27 babies died in Forsyth County before their first birthday. Please join the Forsyth County Infant Mortality Reduction Coalition and community partners as we walk through downtown Winston-Salem with empty baby strollers to commemorate each tragic loss in our community.
This year marks the 7th year of the Walk a Mile to Save Our Babies. Join the community on Thursday, September 29 at 11 am on the steps of Centenary United Methodist Church, 646 W. 5th St., Winston-Salem, to begin our march through downtown. Lunch and a program of awareness and remembrance will follow in the church banquet hall.
Commemorative t-shirts have been made available through the generous support of Forsyth County NC Healthy Start Baby Love Plus and will be available the day of the event on a "first come first served basis".
Register for the 2016 Walk A Mile To Save Our Babies here.
Please share this story with friends, coworkers and especially with families that have experienced this loss.
