    March for Babies Minneapolis 2012

    Sunday, April 29, 2012
    Time: 11:00 AM
    Registration Time: 10:00 AM
    Parade Stadium
    600 Kenwood Parkway
    Minneapolis, MN 55403

    On Sunday, April 29 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.  The money we raise will support March of Dimes research and programs that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies right here in Minnesota.

    The walk is a delightful stroll around Lake of the Isles.  We have three options this year including a 4-mile route around the south end of the lake, a 3-mile route along the north edge of the lake and in case of bad weather a mini-mile along Kenwook Parkway and back. 

    Bank Day is Thursday, April 26 from 10 am to 6 pm at our March of Dimes office, 5233 Edina Industrial Blvd, Edina, MN 55439.  You can arrange a time prior to Bank Day to turn in money and pick up incentive t-shirts.

    Here are directions and parking information for Parade Stadium, 600 Kenwood Parkway.  Parking is in the Dunwoody lot across from Parade at 818 Dunwoody Blvd.  Please take note MNDot is shutting down the eastbound lanes of I-94 from I-35W to Hwy 280.  Traffic traveling eastbound through the Lowry tunnel will be limited to one lane. 

    At the Minneapolis March for Babies you can expect a fun, family atmosphere. There will be musical entertainement, super heroes and plenty of games for the kids.

    March of Dimes is partnering with Families Helping Each Other (FHEO) to improve the health of babies by hosting a diaper drive to provide diapers to babies in need.  Families Helping Each Other has started a diaper bank to distribute diapers to families in need.  You can drop off diapers near the Registration tents.  

    Meet our State March for Babies Chair Dawn Owens, CEO OptumHealth

    Under the leadership of CEO Dawn Owens, OptumHealth has evolved into the country’s leading provider of products and solutions designed to help individuals navigate the health care system, finance their current and future health needs and achieve their health and well-being goals.   OptumHealth provides the tools and solutions for people to live the healthiest lives possible—and that starts at birth.  Dawn believes in the mission of the March of Dimes to improve the health of babies and she is committed to making the 2012 March for Babies a rewarding and successful fundraising event.

    Meet our Minneapolis Ambassador Family

    Matt and Katie Siverson walk in the March for Babies in honor of their daughter Chloe, born too soon and too small.  Complications during pregnancy forced Chloe’s birth at 27 weeks.  She weighed one pound, 12 ounces.  Chloe had a heart murmur and blood clot on her brain.

    “She was the tiniest baby I’d ever seen,” shared Katie. “She seemed so fragile with the lights shining down on her, the tubes and the IVs.”

    It was one week before Katie could hold her baby.  Chloe stayed in the newborn intensive care unit (NICU) for the next three months. The Siverson’s turned to the March of Dimes for comfort and information.  They learned about the risks premature babies face and connected with other families going through a similar experience.

    March of Dimes is researching the causes of problems that threaten babies.  March of Dimes led the drive to put newborn intensive care units within reach of every baby.  Our Nobel Prize-winning research offers hope of treatments and preventions for serious health problems, like premature birth and birth defects.

    Chloe is a bright, charming two-year-old darling.  She became a big sister in March when her sister Fiona was born healthy and full term. “We share our story to encourage others to join the March for Babies,” encourages Katie.  “Supporting the March of Dimes is so dear to our hearts.”
