March of Dimes walk today in Oswego

Breitbeck Park will be the site today (May 3) for local families and business leaders to join 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 year’s Oswego March for Babies Family Teams Chairs, Jason and Jennifer Goodberry of Team Walk for Grace, are walking for their second child, Grace — born stillborn at 37 weeks.

Registration begins at 10 a.m. The 2-mile walk begins at 11 a.m. There also will be music, face painting, Kid Zone provided by Lowe’s, a picnic lunch and more.

To register for an event in your community, visit www.marchforbabies.org.

Funds raised by March for Babies in New York help support prenatal wellness programs, research grants, newborn intensive care unit (NICU) family support programs and advocacy efforts for stronger, healthier babies.
