Students Engaged in Public Health (SEIPH) is pleased to announce the inaugural "Stroll for Healthy Babies" 2K walk on Saturday November 12th, 2011, from 9am-12pm at USG to benefit the African American Health Program’s infant mortality reduction project, SMILE (Start More Infants Living Equally-Healthy).
The sad truth about infant mortality.
Infant Mortality rates in Montgomery County are 2-3 times higher in African American babies, compared to their Caucasian and Hispanic counterparts. All babies deserve a healthy chance and an equal start. Learn more.
An event to SMILE about.
- Stroll for Healthy Babies is a family friendly 2K walk/stroll, not a run.
- All proceeds go directly to S.M.I.L.E., an organization that offers nursing and case management services to at-risk families in Montgomery County.
- Free health info and screenings related to overall wellness, child wellness, and maternal wellness.
- Free facepainting and live music.
- Free t-shirt for the first 100 adult registrants.
Track will be entirely on pavement on the Universities at Shady Grove campus.
