We were alerted to this beauty of an event by our friends at Lovio George Communications and Design.
This year March of Dimes has partnered with two world-class institutions, the Detroit Medical Center and Wayne State University, as well as many other key organizations in the area. The March for Babies Honorary Co-Chairs are Michael Duggan, President and CEO of the Detroit Medical Center and Allan Gilmour, President of Wayne State University. March for Babies Chair for the new Midtown site is Dr. Joel Kahn of the Detroit Medical Center. Together the team will focus on recruiting new companies to participate and lead the community in making a difference for the health of moms and babies. Last year, March for Babies in metropolitan Detroit raised more than $1.4 million.
On April 29 in Midtown Detroit, thousands of families and business leaders will join together in the March of Dimes annual March for Babies--the nation’s oldest walk fundraiser honoring babies born healthy and those who need help to survive and thrive. This is the first time March for Babies will be held in Midtown and with one in eight babies born premature in Detroit, organizers hope to raise significant funds to support lifesaving research and educational programs aimed at helping moms have healthy babies.
March for Babies is on Sunday, April 29 at 8 a.m. on Wayne State University’s Campus in Midtown Detroit. Individuals and companies who want to make a difference can register today here
