March for Babies is a 5k walk that supports the March of Dimes. The day will include fun activities to get the whole family involved, will remember those we've lost, and celebrate those who have beat the odds! There will be music, games, and more!
Where: Arvest Ballpark Springdale, AR
When: March 31, 2018
Why: March for Babies is March of Dimes’ largest fundraiser and awareness event of the year. Until every baby is born healthy, we will remember those babies that we lost, celebrate the babies that have defeated the odds and thank our supporters, who allow us to give hope to the future.
March of Dimes' mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. We carry out our mission through research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies' lives. In an average week in Arkansas there are 741 babies born; 94 of those are born preterm (less than 37 full weeks); 65 babies are born with low birth weight (under 5 ½ pounds) and 6 babies will die before their first birthday. March of Dimes believes that one day, all babies will be born healthy
