March of Dimes hosts their annual March for Babies event to raise funds for research and programs for stronger, healthier babies. With past Miami participants including Jennifer Lopez, John Secada, Carlos Ponce, Nestor Torres and many more, March for Babies is one of America’s favorite fundraisers. Thousands participate in the three-mile walk to help more than 230,000 Florida babies born every year survive and thrive with proper support.
Alongside Shaquille O'Neal, national celebrity spokesperson, 2012 is aimed to help provide hundreds of families whose newborns are hospitalized with the right aid to avoid premature births, birth defects and infant death. This year’s March for Babies will gather some of Miami’s top socialites, corporate and community leaders. To register please visit, www.marchforbabies.org or call (305) 477-1192. There is no cost to participate, but all walkers are asked to raise a minimum of $200.
