After many weeks of working to raise funds to fight for premature babies, Family and Corporate Teams as well as Individual Walkers gather in the morning for the 2017 Laurens County March for Babies. It starts with registration at 9:30, then an Opening Program around 10:00, followed by the 3-mile walk. This year’s walk is being held at the Laurens Family Y.
Following the walk, participants will enjoy food and family-fun activities.
March of Dimes Organizer Allison Seibert notes that one in nine South Carolina babies are born too soon. The Aiken family of Laurens have been touched firsthand by the mission of the March of Dimes. A couple of years ago, their daughter, Stella, was born at 33 weeks and spent over 2 weeks in the NICU. Stella is this year’s Ambassador Child for Laurens Count y.
Sharon O’Bryant of PRTC is Chair of the 2017 March for Babies.
