What is Strolling Thunder?

The first three years of a baby's life shape all the rest. In that short time period, babies form more than one million new neural connections every second. That's a whole lot of brainpower.

When babies don't get what their growing brains need to thrive, they don't develop as they should. This leads to poor life-long developmental, educational, social, and health challenges. All families, regardless of income, should be able to access affordable, quality early childhood education, but the high cost of quality care -- at more than $1,000 a month in northern New Jersey -- puts it out reach for many ALICE® (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) families.

Every minute we waste not making our voices heard, another child runs the risk of not ever reaching her full potential. That's not good for families or our future. That's why United Way of Northern New Jersey has joined the Strolling Thunder campaign: To make Trenton think babies. We are partnering with Advocates for Children of New Jersey to call on our lawmakers in Trenton to make babies and toddlers a priority.

Join us on May 21 from 11:00am to 1:00pm as we bring our babies for a stroll around the State House in Trenton.

The first 200 families who register and attend the event with their baby will receive a $50 gift card.
