2011 Pinwheel Promises for Healthy Babies

In order to raise awareness and to honor the memory of babies who have died in our community Healthy Start has participated in events in 2011 and 2010 focused on Pinwheel Memory Gardens.

In 2011, more than 845 pinwheels were planted to represent the number of babies who died before their first birthday, or were stillborn over the last five years in Southwest Florida. In addition, families were encouraged to make Pinwheel Promises in an effort to reduce infant mortality.
