March for Babies Coming Up 

The March of Dimes wants to invite you to go for a walk. The March for Babies is scheduled for Sunday, May 3rd in Brewer, and they hope a lot of folks sign up so they can reach their goal of raising $75,000.The money will be used to help prevent premature birth which can cause a lot of problems for infants. The rate of babies being born too soon has gone up 29% since 1985. Gene Staffiere, Northern Maine Division Director says the March of Dimes would like to stop that trend, but they need your help. “In Maine, 1500 babies are born premature each year. Also in the state of Maine, there’s an average of two babies that die each week before reaching their 1st birthday, and most of those babies pass away due to premature birth.”March for BabiesSunday, May 3Brewer Auditorium9:00 AM Registration10:00 AM
