On Saturday, April 14 our community will be walking in March for Babies to give hope to the families of babies born too soon or sick -- more than 7,200 each year in Minnesota alone.
Last year, it was a bit snowy, but our hearts were warm knowing we were helping babies.
The money we raise will support March of Dimes research and programs that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies right here in Northern Minnesota.
It funds research to find answers to the serious problems that threaten our babies, like premature birth. Affecting more than half a million babies in our country each year, premature birth is the #1 cause of newborn death and the rate of premature birth continues to rise.
Registration for March for Civic Center is at 9:00 am. The walk starts at 9:30 am. See you there!
