MAFCU Sponsors Baby Steps 5K Run/Walk
June 30, 2014
Germantown, MD – Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union, along with The Gazette and Baby's Bounty Montgomery County (MC) will be sponsoring the 2nd Annual Baby Steps 5K Run/Walk on September 7, 2014 at the RIO Washingtonian Center. Proceeds from the 5K go to support Baby's Bounty MC, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing essential items such as gear and clothing to babies born to victims of domestic abuse, teen mothers, and those living in poverty.
"As a credit union dedicated to supporting our community, MAFCU whole-heartedly supports Baby's Bounty MC's mission of providing essential gear for the health, safety and well-being of our area's littlest residents. By helping these infants in need, Baby's Bounty MC is giving these children the best start at life possible. MAFCU is thrilled to co-sponsor the Baby Steps 5K, and honored to help Baby's Bounty MC provide these children with a safer and healthier life start," said MAFCU's VP of Marketing, Marc Wilensky.
Baby's Bounty MC works with local social service organizations to identify babies in need. Costing about $300 per bundle, each Baby's Bounty bundle includes a new car seat, a Pack N Play, diaper bags, infant clothing, new bottles and pacifiers, baby blankets, infant bathtubs, baby toiletries, and other assorted baby items. Jesica Roman, Executive Director of Baby's Bounty MC states, "The items we provide are essential to a new baby's health, safety, and well-being. With the generous help of the community and organizations such as the Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union and The Gazette, we are able to get these crucial items to those who need it most. In many situations, newborns are sleeping on the floor or co-sleeping with siblings, leaving them at a major safety risk. We are truly grateful to our donors, supporters, and our shared community for their help in providing a good start for every baby."
The Baby Steps 5K will begin at 7:45am with a warm-up led by Soldierfit, followed by a 5K for timed runners at 8:00AM. A Fun Run/Walk for non-timed runners and children will begin at 9:00AM.
