Miracle Milk™ Stroll Local Sponsorship Opportunity

Thank you for your interest to sponsor your local Miracle Milk™ Stroll!

The Miracle Milk™ Stroll (MMS) is an annual nationwide consumer-driven campaign to raise awareness & funds for human milk to help save the lives of 500 premature infants annually from Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) – and help prevent 5000 babies each year from contracting this often deadly and painful disease. On May 2, 2015, thousands of parents, friends, families and community members, will gather at over 100 different locations– parks and malls across the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico– to stroll for this cause.  The Stroll is accompanied by an educational meme series on the power of human milk and will help fulfill our mission of educating parents, providers and the public about the critical role of human milk for fragile and preterm babies.  Last year’s memes reached hundreds of thousands and Best for Babe’s Champions for Moms Alysia Reiner, Kelly Rutherford, Kailyn Lowry (Teen Mom 2) and Baltimore Raven Justin Forsett supported the event.  Proceeds are shared between Best for Babes, NECSociety.org and other 501 (c)3 nonprofits in the maternal/infant health arena. This year our additional partner is La Leche League USA.  In addition to our national sponsor, Limerick,  we are inviting local businesses to participate in this groundbreaking event and demonstrate their support!   

Whether breast, bottle or formula as personal choice, everyone can get behind the urgent need for life-saving human milk for babies in the NICU!

Best for Babes is the only mainstream consumer-driven nonprofit for the breastfeeding/human milk cause.
