LittleBigSouls Walk for Preemies 2017 is the 6th annual LittleBigSouls prematurity awareness walk held in Accra and is the biggest annual awareness event that LittleBigSouls Ghana organises to create awareness for the casue of premarure birth and its effects.
The walk is a 5km walk through the principle streets of Accra. It aims to create awareness of prematurity and its effects and honours the 1 million plus premature babies who die each year across the world.
LittleBigSouls Ghana is a charity for premature babies. We are the voice of the premature baby born in Africa. We work to give every premature baby born in Africa a fighting chance at life.
The Walk is scheduled every year in November as close to World Prematurity Day as possible. Together with our partners across the world,we aim to persuade governments to make the care for preterms a priority and for the public to acknowledge the toll that the unnecessary deaths of premature babies have on our society.
This year's Walk for Preemies will take place on Saturday, 11th November 2017. It is a 5KM walk through some principal streets of Accra. We flag off from Cleaver House (near Tigo Head Office), Adabraka at 6am. The day begins with a walk and culminates in a Family Fun Day which ends at 3pm.
We invite YOU to join us at the Walk. You may choose to walk as an individual or in a team. Register for our LittleBigSouls walker’s pack which will include our t-shirts. We have found our Walk to be a great way to bond, boost morale and raise team spirit – it is also a lot of fun!
As founding members of the World Prematurity Network, participation in the Walk will be noticed internationally and will demonstrate that we are serious about, and particularly focused on reducing the terrible statistics of premature baby deaths in Africa.
