Walk for Black Infant Mortality Awareness

Please join in supporting the Walk for Black Infant Mortality Awareness.  Sherry Payne will be walking across the state of Missouri from Sept. 1-12, 2014 to bring awareness to health inequities in the African-American community for pregnant women and their newborns.

She will walk 200 miles between Kansas City and St. Louis.  I plan to support her walk by pledging $1 per mile.  Who will join me?  This is an important cause that see improvement only with full scale support from everyone.  Won’t you join me in supporting Sherry in her walk?  To find ]out more about her and her work in the urban core with pregnant women, go to www.uzazivillage.com.

Thank you for taking the time to read this appeal, and considering pledging a gift per mile or a flat one time donation.  To follow the walk go to https://www.facebook.com/pages/Black-Infant-Mortality-Awareness-Walk/498451910252717 on Facebook or check back here frequently for updates.

Your gift to Uzazi Village for its innovative life saving programs is tax deductible.  All funds will go to support the capacity and programming of Uzazi Village.
