The Jacksonville Baby Buggy Walk in the Park is a family festival that calls attention to the link between healthy lifestyles, healthy families and healthy babies. The walk takes place during National Infant Mortality Awareness Month, which aims to bring awareness to improving birth outcomes and reducing health disparities.
This year the festivities took place at Klutho Park in the historic Springfield neighborhood. In addition to community members, the Fatherhood PRIDE program came out strong to bring attention to the important role that fathers play in child health and development.
