Wayne State University is proud to host the March of Dimes March for Babies on Sunday, April 29. The March of Dimes’ mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Their mission is carried out through research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies’ lives.
Why we walk
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 our community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten babies.
The March will begin and end at St. Andrew’s Church located on Anthony Wayne Drive near Warren Avenue on Wayne State’s main campus. Participants may park in parking Structure 2 or Structure 5 for $5.00. Registration opens at 8 a.m. and the march will begin at 9 a.m.
Contact Sarah Arminiak, March of Dimes Director of Development, at (248) 359-1563 firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or need more information.
