Birmingham community to gather for March for Babies kickoff in support of March of Dimes

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Birmingham residents, local business leaders, and other interested members of the community are invited to attend the March for Babies Greater Birmingham Kickoff event to help support the health of moms and give every baby the best possible start in life.

March for Babies kickoff

March for Babies is the biggest annual March of Dimes fundraiser. The event raised more than $675,000 in our community last year to help March of Dimes lead the fight for the health of all moms and babies. Now more than ever, families need a champion like you.

This year’s luncheon kicks off on Thursday, Feb. 21. from 11:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at The Florentine (2nd Ave. N. Birmingham, Al 35203).
