This years March of Dimes 5K walk has a chance to surpass last years lofty number of participants and money raised for baby health.
The walk will start at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 24 at Julia Davis Park.
More than 1,100 walkers raised more than $250,000 last year, State Director Denise Brennan said.
Proceeds go to families with babies suffering with health problems.
The 5K will start and end at the parks band shell and follow a course along both sides of the river.
Participants can register before the event at 9 a.m., though Brennan encouraged walkers to register beforehand online at marchforbabies.org.
Participation is free. Walkers raise money by making personal donations or soliciting donations.
The event will feature childrens activities, including a hula-hoop contest, games and a Bounce House.
