Bitterroot Baby Run & Stroller Stampede


This is an annual event held in Hamilton, MT to celebrate that start of World Breastfeeding Week.  It was held on July 28th this year and was funded by sponsorships from local physicians as well as businesses. Events included a 5k and 1-mile (Kids run/walk). Bitterroot Breastfeeding Coalition has partnered with South Valley Child and Family Center to host this event.

This project is our annual celebration of world breastfeeding week.  This event is generally held the last weekend in July and is about 4 hours long.  We chose a fun run because it offers families a positive and empowering way to show their support for breastfeeding in our community.  We have tried hard to make this affordable for families as well as accommodating by encouraging strollers, walking or running. This year, approximately 50 adults and children came out to show their support for breastfeeding in our community.
