Event description

Description

Every year, on the 40th Saturday of the year at 11:00 am, mothers and children unite at different sites around the world to compete in the annual Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge to set a record for the most children breastfeeding at one time. The Challenge strives to increase public awareness of the normality of breastfeeding, the benefits to mother, child and community and the ways in which women need support to achieve the recommended duration for breastfeeding.

In 2016, Chilliwack had 156 babies breastfed simultaneously placing us first in North America! This is an amazing achievement and we are proud that our community is so supportive about the health and wellness of our children.

2017 will be the 17th annual Chilliwack Breastfeeding Challenge! For more information regarding this year's event, please e-mail: chwk.bf.challenge@gmail.com

FAQs

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

chwk.bf.challenge@gmail.com

Can I bring a stroller to the event?

Due to fire regulations we ask that strollers be parked ina seperate area and that babies be 'in arms'. (because large numbers of stollers become a tripping hazard and can block exits)

Can I update my registration information?

Yes.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, you do not need to bring your printed ticket to the event.

Can I bring a friend to the event?

Yes! Please spread the word about this event (and share the registration link). The first 200 pre-registered participants will receive a special certificate commemorating their participation in the event & some special gifts/samples so pre-registration is recommended.

Can I donate a door prize for the event?

Yes! Door prizes help to make the event more fun for everyone. We would love to have door prizes to give away at the event. Drop an e-mail to chwk.bf.challenge@gmail.com to arrange for pickup.
