March for Babies® presented by Bank of America is a day for everyone. Together we hope for a day when all moms and babies are healthy. We remember those babies we lost. We celebrate every baby. Families, businesses, and volunteers dedicated to the fight for the health of all moms and babies take part in March for Babies, March of Dimes biggest annual fundraising event.
From start to finish, families will be celebrated with special moments. Before the march, children can take part in the superhero sprint, complete with a purple cape. Pre-registration for the superhero sprint is required and there is a fee to participate. Participants, especially those who have experienced the loss of a baby, can remember by placing a butterfly stake with the child’s name on it in the butterfly garden at the walk site. Along the 3-mile walk route, marchers will go on a journey where live musical performances will inspire hope, purple balloon bouquets will symbolize loss, and finally, in the last mile, participants will be able to joyfully blow bubbles to celebrate every mom and every baby. Before and after the march, the Festival Zone will be filled with music, sponsor booths, bounce house, face painter and balloon artists. Everyone can enjoy refreshments.
