BabySTEPPs will be hosting their biggest event to date: Gibraltar’s first ever Pramathon. Vice-chairperson Louise says “a Pramathon is simply a charity walk WITH prams so we encourage all the family to come along with their buggies and take part in the event. This is a family event, and contrary to other charity walks, we invite all participants young and old to come along and “push” something along the way.
