Join families from across Colorado at the Strolling Thunder Colorado rally and stroll on Saturday, Sept. 21 and bring attention to what babies and their families need to thrive! The event starts with a rally at 9:30 am at the Spring Café at 1373 Grant Street in Denver and is followed by a stroll around the Colorado State Capitol to visually connect pregnant people, infants, toddlers and their families to the decision-making that takes place under the gold dome. After the stroll, attendees can enjoy refreshments provided by the Spring Café and visit with community organizations that serve families with infants and toddlers. This year’s event includes “And Carry On!”—a community-based effort to include moms, dads, parents, families and others who use wraps, slings, carriers, backpacks and more to travel with their children. RSVP today at bit.ly/strollingthunderco.

By bringing together families with babies and toddlers to make their voices heard, Raise Colorado hopes to remind state legislators to #ThinkBabies when making policy decisions. Early experiences shape how a baby’s brain develops, laying the foundation for future learning, behavior and health. No matter how you choose to stroll with your baby – with a stroller, wrap, sling, carrier, backpack or more, we hope you will join us to bring statewide attention to what babies and families need to thrive. Families who attend Strolling Thunder Colorado from outside the Denver metro area could be eligible for financial support to participate in the event, including mileage, lodging, and other expenses.
