Join 10News and March of Dimes as we march for all healthy babies.
March for Babies® is a day for everyone. Together we hope for a day when all moms and babies are healthy. We remember those babies we lost. We celebrate every baby. Families, businesses, and volunteers dedicated to the fight for the health of all moms and babies take part in March for Babies, March of Dimes biggest annual fundraising event.
In San Diego, much of those funds raised locally go to research, leading programs and providing education and advocacy, much of it right here in our community supporting organizations like UCSD NeoNatal, Rady Childrens’ Hospital or The Salk Institute.
Each walk distance is 3.5 miles along beautiful routes within the parks.
Registration: 7:00 a.m. Start: 8:00a.m.
