Each year, proceeds from March for Babies help support research and programs to help prevent or treat premature birth, birth defects and infant mortality. In an average week in Georgia, 375 babies are born premature. Annually, that amounts to nearly 20,000 premature babies in the state and more than 500,000 across the country.
This year's March for Babies will take place at Riverside Park in Roswell starting at 10 a.m. In addition to the march, the event will also include a picnic courtesy of Publix, music provided by Star 94 and a “Kids Corner” complete with face painters, balloon art and Sammy the Stork.
