Description

Greetings!
First, on behalf of everyone at Uzazi Village, we’d like to thank you for your
support in organizing this expanded community walk. As you know, it is the 5 th
year for the walk and our goal was to expand the walk to include community and
to help raise awareness of the issue Black Infant Mortality locally, with your help –
we have done that.
Here is our plan for tomorrow:
7:00 a.m. – Registration Tables are up and open
 Health Department Parking Lot
 Research – Blue Tent, Just West of Main Entrance on Meyer
7:45 a.m. - Welcome & General Comments
 Hakima – Health Department
 Kellye – Research Medical Center
8:00 a.m. Walk Starts
8:30 a.m. Research/Health Department Tables Close
Health Dept Route
 Troost to Blip Coffee – 30 th Troost (route sponsor) to Uzazi
Research Route:
 Meyer to 63 rd Street to Troost to Rockhurst (route sponsor) to Uzazi
If walkers need transportation back to Health Department or Research, we will
have volunteers available to drive them back.


African-American infants are twice as likely to die prior to their first birthday than white infants. At Uzazi Village, we are working to push those numbers back. We offer interventions to support healthier pregnancies, and healthier babies. Join us for our SIXTH annual Walk for Black Infant Mortality Awareness. This year we have two teams walking. One team will start at Truman Medical Center, the other team will start at Research Medical Center and both teams will converge on Uzazi Village. Lunch will be served at Uzazi Village following the walk. The walk is 3 miles for both teams. You can register online and get a walk t-shirt for $20. Walk solo or create a team. All funds raised from the walk will go to support programming at Uzazi Village. All donations are tax deductible.
Can't make the walk? Purchase a yard sign for $10 to place along the path of our walk.
You can also plan to attend our Village Forum Breakfast on September 26 at Soiree at 18th and Vine.
