2015 6th Annual Walk A Mile to Save Our Babies
In the most recently reported data, 37 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.
Watch this year's registration video here.
This year marks the 6th year of the Walk a Mile to Save Our Babies. Join the community on Tuesday, September 29 at 11:30 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".
