Where Every Family Matters

March for Babies at First Horizon Park on April 13

March for Babies benefits the March of Dimes mission to fight for the health of all moms and babies.

The stats don’t lie. Every year, one woman dies every 12 hours from pregnancy and childbirth complications, two babies die every hour, and one in 10 babies is born too soon, according to the March of Dimes.

Come out to help be a part of the solution when the March of Dimes of Middle Tennessee holds March for Babies on Saturday, April 13. Taking place at First Horizon Park (home of the Nashville Sounds), located at 19 Junior Gilliam Way in Nashville, teams are forming now, and to date, $89 thousand of a $250 thousand goal has been raised. You can join individually or as a team.

The March of Dimes works to improve health outcomes for women and babies by funding research and pushing for policy changes that protect moms and moms-to-be. The mission is to promote and advocate for healthy pregnancies in order to reduce the risk of infants born pre-term or with birth anomalies.

The local March for Babies route will start with a lap around the First Horizon stadium concourse, followed by laps on the field; each lap is approximately one-third of a mile. For the event, complete up to five laps.
