Fort St. John to host breastfeeding challenge

The event is held worldwide, put on by the Quintessence Foundation to see how many children can be breastfed at one time. In 2009, Fort St. John's high attendance earned it a gold certificate.

The challenge begins at 11:00 a.m. and registration begins at 10.

Currently, the record for the most mothers feeding in one place at one time is over 3700 in the Phillipines. Fort St. John's goal is a little more modest, as the Society can only hold so many.
