SOUTH BEND — Thousands of families affected by premature birth, infant mortality and birth defects come together annually with the March of Dimes and March for Babies walk. The Michiana event is set for May 17 at Coveleski Stadium, 501 W. South St.
Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the walk will start at 9:30 a.m. To register as a team or individually, or for more information, visit the March for Babies website, call 800-905-9255 or visit the office at 209 N. Main St., Ste. 300.
