Hundreds of community members gathered once again at Zoo Miami for ICU baby’s 3rd Annual Hope Parade and it was a morning to remember! This year, more than ever, NICU alumni who had been supported by ICU baby’s programs returned to celebrate their NICU journeys. Families connected with their NICU grad’s nurses and ICU baby mentors, reflecting on their NICU journey. Community members from schools and companies also joined in the morning festivities to show their support, participating in the Kid Zone, the Adventure Map Trail and the Why Wall. The Hallway of Hope remained a morning highlight as guests walked through a walk path lined with photos of babies in the hospital and now as NICU grads. Thanks to our generous sponsors, loyal supporters and loving families for making this morning such a huge success and for raising awareness about the NICU.
