Description

This Virtual 5K is an opportunity for those passionate about birth and breastfeeding justice to join together across communities to move! Walk, run or race - this event can move at your pace.

Breastfeeding benefits everyone. Beyond the well-known benefits of human milk for both parents and children, breastfeeding is nourishment, medicine, and comfort. 85 percent of Michigan families initiate breastfeeding. Unfortunately, our current systems, policies, and norms make it extremely difficult for families to achieve their breastfeeding goals. Breastfeeding benefits everyone, so we need everyone, from every walk of life and every community, to invest in this work of building breastfeeding-supportive systems throughout Michigan. We are part of a movement toward a breastfeeding-supportive culture, and we are stronger together. MIBFN collaborates with organizations and individuals to bring about actionable, system-level changes that are centered on the diverse experiences of Michigan families with young children. We advocate, educate, and community-build alongside families and organizations for the advancement of an equitable, just, and breastfeeding-supportive culture. We need YOU to join the MOVEment. Proceeds from this 5K will go towards MIBFN’s efforts for systemic breastfeeding change in Michigan.
