When: Saturday, October 3, 2009, 10am-2pm
Where: Prospect Park, NYC
Every year, New York City celebrates the dedication and skill of their midwives with Miles for Midwives, an annual charity run/walk. Sponsored this year by Choices in Childbirth and the American College of Nurse-Midwives, the event will raise money to ensure quality midwifery care in New York City. Quality care creates healthy families, and healthy families create healthy communities. The run/walk is five kilometers long – one loop of Brooklyn’s Prospect Park – and it’s a fun, relaxed event for community members of all ages. There will be medals for place winners, t-shirts for early registrants, and be sure to stay for the picnic after the race!
Register online or at Prospect Park on the day of the event.
