Go Baby Go Build and Grow Event
What is the Go Baby Go! "Build and Grow Event"?
It is a multi-faceted event that brings together ALL members of the community: families, healthcare providers, policy makers, legislators, local businesses, civic organizations, volunteer groups, and corporate partners. During the event, participants share information, build sustainable plans, and build vehicles for children to “drive home” that day. The inaugural event at Marymount University on Septmeber 17th 2016, increased the Go Baby Go! outreach in Northern Virginia and future events will be planned to conoitnue this movement. At each event we will build both cars at the Marymount Garage and the foundation for a permanent community infrastructure of support.
In addition to building multiple Go Baby Go! cars, the day included:
- Sessions with policy-makers invited to learn about the issues
- A “Pit Stop” Exhibit Hall
- A “Pole-Position” Kids-Zone with child care and activities
- A Parent Forum to discuss equipment-related issues
- A “Road rally” around Victory Lane
“When your main goal is mobility and socialization of young children and their families, you can’t ask for better collaborators than Barbie and Mater.” – Cole Galloway, GBG Creator
