We will be walking a 5K walk on May 5 for International Day of the Midwife! The International Confederation of Midwives (ICM) has called on midwives worldwide to walk on this day in solidarity to build commitment to tackling global inequalities in maternal and newborn mortality and to highlight local issues in midwifery service provisions.

Less than one month! Things to remember for walk:

May 7 is fast approaching. Please remember to register as soon as possible to insure that you get a t-shirt in your size on walk day!

Some things to keep in mind on walk day:
·   Please bring water to walk with. We will have water on the trail, but it is always good to carry your own, and the weather would be quite warm!
·   Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy afterwards. While we will not have “food” at the event, everyone is invited to picnic after the walk in Kit Carson Park. We will have the band “Java Divashttp://www.myspace.com/javadivas playing for us as we picnic.
Java Divas and John is a 5 piece rock and country band, all female except for one of us - you'll have to guess which one. We sing rich harmonies and play everything from "Devil Went down to Georgia" to stuff you hear on the radio today. Tina's on guitar and lead vocals, Bria on bass, John on guitar, Bronson on drums, and Kat on violin, mandolin, guitar, and pretty much any instrument you put in front of her.

Look forward to seeing everyone and helping raise money for the Safe Motherhood Initiative!
