This spring, you'll be joining thousands of people in cities across the country for March for Babies, and helping to raise critical funds to support research, advocacy and programs for the health of all moms and babies.
At March for Babies we come together to empower, honor and advocate for moms, families and babies everywhere.
Thank you for joining our community— we can’t do it without you!
We can’t wait to see you at March for Babies.
We are excited to be at a new venue this year walking on the beautiful campus of the University of North Florida centrally located on the south side of Jacksonville off JTB and 295. For directions to campus and a campus map, please click visit www.unf.edu. Once you are on-campus, please follow our March for Babies signs and our day-of parking volunteers who will direct you to the approved parking area (garage 38) near the arena and Student Union.
Registration opens at 8 am and the walk begins at 9 am at the Coxwell Amphitheater. Anyone who has not registered online must come by the registration tent to sign a liability waiver to walk. T-shirts for participants who raised over $100 are available for pick up at Registration beginning at 8 am until 11 am. If you are turning in funds or qualify for an incentive shirt that you have not yet secured, please print and bring your online sponsor form to the Registration Tent when you first arrive at the event.
The Kid Zone will open at 8 am and feature inflatable games, arts and crafts, and annual Super Hero Sprint at 8:50 am. Registration for the Super Hero Sprint is free with a signed parent waiver.
The walk is about three miles long through the heart of the UNF campus easily accessible for families and strollers. According to UNF's policies service animals are the only animals allowed on the walk route and event site.
We will provide light snacks before and after the event courtesy of Whataburger, Dunkin' Donuts, and Snyder. Water will be available throughout the day and along the route.
If you would like to volunteer to help us prepare for, day-of, in the days after March for Babies or any other time during the year, please contact: Ericha Gore at Egore@marchofdimes.org
