March For Babies Omaha Event Details

Until this year, March of Dimes’ March for Babies was on the periphery of my life. A friend out east walked in one with her preemie daughter; she had found a lot of support through March of Dimes. But I didn’t keep tabs on my local chapter.

And then this little sweetheart came along.

My niece, Sofie, was born at 27 weeks.

My niece, Sofie Anne.

She was born at 27 weeks on Dr. Seuss’ birthday this year. (Oh, the places she’ll go!)

So, that brings me to an event in Omaha that now has a little more weight in my life.

March for Babies Omaha

march-for-babiesThe March for Babies Omaha is Saturday, April 26, starting at the Lewis & Clark Landing, 515 Riverfront Drive. The walk begins at 9 a.m.; registration starts at 8. I’ve done charity walks there in the past and it’s a lovely route along the river.

I already am committed to a 5K that day, so I cannot attend. But you should! Teams are forming now. You can register here.
