As many of you know this past month Northeast Doulas held our 4th annual “No Child Wet Behind” 5k and family fun day. We are grateful for the support that makes this event possible each year and look forward contributing to No Child Wet Behind's growth each year. As No Child Wet Behind continues to gain momentum, we are able to help struggling families throughout the nation.
This year seventeen cities participated in this amazing nationwide cause, each donating to a beneficiary within their community.
A total of 202,431 diapers have been collected to date!
A special and sincere thank you to the mayor of White Plains, Thomas Roach who happened to take the bronze medal for 3rd place in our 5K fundraiser race.
Another special thank you to the Commissioner of Social Services, Kevin McGuire, the Deputy Commissioner of Social Services, John Befus and Wendy Armstrong and Michelle Memoli from the Junior League of Central Westchester. The success of our event would not have been possible without their compassionate support.
We also want to give a huge thank you to our 2016 No Child Wet Behind Sponsors.
Our 5K running race was a hit and we appreciate all the runners who came out to benefit members of their community through their participation. We applaud our first place male and female winners, Bryan Wujcik and Kristen Nicolais!!!
We hope to increase awareness to this social issue and continue to collect diapers and supplies to support families who are struggling to provide this basic necessity for their children. Diapers collected for our event held in FDR park in Yorktown, New York went directly to The Westchester County Diaper Bank.
We want to warmly thank all those who took the time to donate to our cause and for all those who continue to make this event grow into a national relief.
Thank you to our Northeast Doulas family and friends for all of your help in the development and support of this event!!
Help raise awareness for this issue by staying informed and encouraging others in your community to give back to truly make a difference close to home. We look forward to the opportunity to keep more behinds dry in the years to come.
