Sunday April 27, 2014 - Saturday May 10, 2014
The March of Dimes is making progress! America's pre-term birth rate has gone down for six years in a row and is now at an all-time low. But there's still much work to be done to give more babies a healthy start to life. Join the March for Babies! Walk for a baby you love and help more moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. Walks take place throughout Chicago and the suburbs. To join a walk near you, CLICK HERE.
It's been called the premier athletic event in the southwest suburbs. Join The Drive at the First Midwest Half Marathon and a half-mile Walk, Run or Roll race for those with special needs. It's happening at Route 83 & 76th Avenue in Palos Heights, on Sunday morning, May 4th.
