    March for Babies Downtown Atlanta 2012

    Saturday, April 28, 2012
    Time: 9:00 AM
    Registration Time: 7:30 AM
    Georgia World Congress Center
    285 Andrew Young International Boulevard
    Atlanta, GA 30313

    When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies. We’ve been walking since 1970 and have raised an incredible $2 billion to benefit all babies.

    Join us at Georgia’s largest March for Babies event in downtown Atlanta! There will be live music, picnic lunch provided by Publix Supermarkets, team photos, kids activity area, t-shirt contest and over 10,000 champions marching for Georgia’s babies! March for Babies is rain or shine. Strollers and pets with leashes are welcome.
