2012 Baby Buggy Walk event image
The Baby Buggy Walk is a unique event concept developed by Baltimore Healthy Start, Inc., that empowers women of reproductive age and new mothers to take charge of their health and the health of their children through education with an engaging theme. While enjoying a fun-filled day in the park, Healthy Start families learn about eating right, making time for exercise, health-related resources in their own communities and how all of these elements work together to give their babies a better start in life – even if they aren't yet parents or looking to become parents.

A letter from Alma Roberts, President, National Healthy Start Association, and President & CEO, Baltimore Healthy Start, Inc.

Alma Roberts Thank you for your commitment to healthy children and families!

Since 1991, when the first 15 projects were funded by the federal government, Healthy Start has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of families across the nation through an enduring commitment to improve birth outcomes and eliminate the health disparities that claim the lives of too many infants in communities of color.

In September 2012, Baltimore Healthy Start, Inc., with the support and partnership of U.S. Office of Minority Health Resource Center, developed and launched the Baby Buggy Walk in the Park. Over 100 families attended and participated in a 1.5 mile walk around a picturesque lake. More than 20 partners provided a broad array of services, including nutritious food, health screenings and family activities.

This year, we are excited to embark on the path to making the Baby Buggy Walk in the Park a national event, with your support. Along with the Office of Minority Health Resource Center, we have developed this toolkit to help you plan and carry out a Baby Buggy Walk in the Park event in your community. The toolkit provides template resources, event planning tips and more.

Thank you again for your support and we look forward to working with you!
