According to the March of Dimes, premature babies often spend weeks in the neonatal intensive care unit fighting for life, and often have lasting disabilities due to being born before they are ready. Edmonds’ City Park will be the starting place for the 2014 March for Babies Snohomish fundraising walk, set for Saturday, April 26. David Jaffe, Chief Executive of Swedish/Edmonds, is serving as the 2014 March for Babies Chair.
March for Babies is the March of Dimes’ largest fundraiser, with more than 9,000 walkers bringing in more than $1.8 million in Washington state last year.
Registration begins at 8 a.m. and the walk starts at 9 a.m., all at City Park, located at 600 3rd Ave. S. in downtown Edmonds.
Snohomish County residents can sign up today for the March for Babies walk at marchforbabies.org and start a team with co-workers, family or friends.
