Milton, FL– The 2018 “Walk for Mommy & Me” will take place on Saturday, April 21, from 10:00 a.m. to Noon at Carpenter’s Park on Munson Highway in Milton.  The walk is sponsored by the Florida Department of Health in Santa Rosa County WIC Program and supports the Department of Health’s Healthiest Weight Campaign, emphasizing the importance of physical activity and good nutrition as part of a healthy lifestyle.  No rain date has been determined.

“We are happy to be able to sponsor The Walk again this year,” said Dianne Pickens, LD, WIC director with DOH-Santa Rosa. “The event really focuses on the whole family.  There are activities for children and lots of good information for parents.  It’s a great opportunity for families to spend some time together having fun and being physically active.  We encourage everyone to come out and have a good time.”  

The walk around the park will feature booths with information of interest to parents, including nutrition and car seat safety, activities and games for children, the Crash Test Dummies and other local mascots.
