Help March of Dimes make a difference

If you live in the Montgomery County, Pa., area and want to go out and support a good cause, The March of Dimes is holding a March for Babies 2008 in Pottstown this Sunday (sorry, I said it was Saturday earlier and now it's corrected. The event happens on Sunday).

The event will consists of a 5-mile walk that begins and ends at Memorial Park in Pottstown. While strolling through town, participants can enjoy snacks, entertainment that includes face painting, children's games and crafts, a ventriloquist and music provided by Enchanted Midnight. Fun family activities are planned for after the walk as well.

Registration for the event begins at 9 a.m. and the walk is set to start at 10 a.m.

According to the March of Dimes, the March for Babies is their biggest fundraiser and it helps support their mission of improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Walkers raise money by asking friends, family and business associates to sponsor them with a donation for the March of Dimes.

This year's goal is to raise $89,000. To help the March of Dimes meet that goal, get involved by calling Jen Bauman at 610-945-6050 or e-mail her at jbauman@marchofdimes.com. Of course more information can be found at March of Dimes Web site.
