“The goal of the HaRUNbee Walk/Run is to raise awareness of infant mortality, and encourage collaborations within the greater Milwaukee area to reduce it,” Alderwoman Coggs said. “Additionally, we continue to work to eliminate racial disparities in healthy birth outcomes and through this annual event, we also promote wellness and the importance of staying healthy and fit, both physically and mentally.”
In conjunction with Bronzeville Week, the National Coalition for Healthy Black Families has helped organize the HaRUNbee Walk/Run for Healthy Birth Outcomes. A number of local organizations are sponsoring the 2021 HaRUNbee event, including Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin and the City of Milwaukee Health Department.
Several Council members have been added as co-sponsors of file #210360: Alderwoman Marina Dimitrijevic; Alderman Mark A. Borkowski; Alderman Scott Spiker; Alderman Ashanti Hamilton; Alderman Russell W. Stamper, II, and Alderman Cavalier Johnson.
