March of Dimes BBQ and Walk
There are 6,200 babies born too early out of half a million right here in Utah. We have partnered with March of Dimes for the second year to support this great cause and help researchers find the causes of premature birth and help improve the health of babies and support families if something does go wrong. There are two upcoming events for you to participate in and help support this cause.
- March of Dimes BBQ – Wednesday, April 22; Thursday, April 23, 2015
When: 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Where: Jordan Valley Medical Center (22nd), Jordan Valley Medical Center West Valley Campus (23rd)
- March for Babies Walk – Saturday, May 16, 2015
When: 10 a.m. (8 a.m. registration)
Where: Sugar House Park (1400 East 2100 South, Salt Lake City, UT 84106)
Come and enjoy some food and enter raffles to win prizes at the BBQ or get out outside and walk with people that share the same passion as you for improving the health of babies. You can sign up in teams with your family, company, or friends to help make a difference for real families in our community.
The funds raised from these events goes to helping those right here in our community be informed, get the prenatal care needed to help prevent premature births and birth defects, and help support those families whose babies are born premature or have other health issues requiring them to be in the NICU. Together, by supporting the March of Dimes Foundation, we can help families in our community.
