Miles For Milk — Northwest Mothers Milk Bank is hosting our 1st Annual Virtual Run. Funds
raised will supply safe, donor milk to vulnerable babies.
Breastmilk donation saves lives! Donor milk is a crucial aspect of caring for premature, hospitalized and fragile babies whose own mothers cannot supply breastmilk for them.
One in ten infants is born prematurely in the United States and many spend time in Neonatal Intensive Care Units; human milk provides these infants with optimal nutrition, promotes normal growth and development, and reduces the risk of illness, disease and death.
Our generous milk donors are NW mothers who lovingly offer the unique gift of their extra breastmilk to help feed babies in their own communities.
With this event we hope to raise enough money to feed a hospitalized baby for an entire year $10,000. Each $25 registration feeds a baby safe, humanmilk for an entire day!
This race is happening everywhere! Each participant will run or walk a 5K or 10K on their
favorite path between August 1st 14th. Register at donatemilk.org and get a NW Milk Bank swagbag. Local Portlanders can pick up their swag on July 31st at McMenamins Kennedy
School 10a 12p. Every runner will receive a medal after their race.
