Peoria March for Babies This Sunday- Rain or Shine
(Peoria…April 23, 2010) The 2010 March of Dimes March for Babies this Sunday will take place rain or shine! If there is heavy rain, there will still be a brief ceremony to celebrate the hard work of the walkers and volunteers, as well as the March of Dimes mission. There will be plenty of tents and shelters available for walkers to enjoy the food and activities. The only case in which the walk will be canceled is if there are dangerous storm warnings. If the event is canceled, walkers should still bring their donations to the park during the registration time.
The 2010 March for Babies walk will take place on April 25th from 1:00 pm. until 3:00 p.m. at Lower Bradley Park-- 1314 Park Road (Farmington Road at West Main and Park Road) Peoria, IL 61604.
The event features face painting, balloon art by Doug Smith with The Unique Twist, music, baby yoga, Homer (the Peoria Chief’s beloved mascot), moon walks, lots of food and much more! Registration begins at 12:00 p.m. and the first 150 walkers will receive a March of Dimes bag, sponsored by Methodist Medical Center, filled with goodies from Peoria Vendors, so don’t be late.
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 your community that help
moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies. We’ve been walking since 1970 and have raised an incredible $1.8 billion to benefit all babies.
The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. Our mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. We carry out this mission through research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies' lives. March of Dimes researchers, volunteers, educators, outreach workers and advocates work together to give all babies a fighting chance against the threats to their health.-NewsAnchorMom Jen
