Dawn Diaz, Founder
The Annual Mother’s Day Walk was created by Dawn Diaz; Inspirational Speaker, Author, Life Coach, and Founder of Milagros Day Worldwide. Always the visionary, in 2011 Dawn set out to begin this New York City tradition. The result was a fun, family event to honor and celebrate Motherhood while raising awareness and funds to support programs for those who have experienced Domestic Violence. She chose the Brooklyn Bridge as a tribute to her own mother Carmen Milagros, who suffered severe physical abuse while Dawn was growing up; and to her years as a Paramedic/Captain in The New York City Fire Department (FDNY) where she responded to countless Domestic Violence 911 calls.
