BENEFITING: INDIAN RIVER COUNTY HEALTHY START COALITION INC
EVENT DATE: Feb 21, 2016
Every baby deserves a healthy start, and what better way to demonstrate giving back, mental and physical strength than the magic of being able to celebrate my passion of running and the gift of life by starting a fundraiser to support IRC Healthy Start Coalition. On February 21st, 2016 I will be running in the Disney Princess Half Marathon and have persoanlly chosen to raise money to donate to the outstanding organziation.
Indian River County Healthy Start Coalition is a community-based, non-profit, public-private agency established to ensure a comprehensive prenatal and infant system of health care and support services are available to pregnant women, infants and families in Indian River County.
The IRC Healthy Start Coalition is one of 31 Coalitions in the state of Florida, all with the same passion, vision and mission.
Our Passion: Helping mothers and their infants is the foundation of everything we do at the Coalition
Our Vision: To have the healthiest babies born in the State of Florida
Our Mission: To offer a broad spectrum of programs to assure every pregnant women and their young children receive necessary healthcare and support services.
IRC Healthy Start Coalition is the gateway for pregnant women and families to be connected with support services and resources through our universal prenatal screening, conducted with our Obstetrical providers in Indian River County. All pregnant women, regardless of their economic status, are eligible to participate in the Healthy Start program, especially if they are at high risk for poor birth outcome. All infants born in Indian River County receive a postnatal screening to identity any at-risk or developmental issues for the infant and follow up with support services. We, IRC Healthy Start Coalition, offer six programs; Healthy Start Care Coordination, Parents As Teachers, Healthy Families of IRC, Belly Beautiful, TLC Newborn and MomCare.
It is my goal everyday to ensure that I am opening as many networking doors and opportunities, not just for IRC Healthy Start Coalition, but for all 31 in the state of Florida. Every baby deserves a healthy start!
