March for Babies set for Saturday


Walkers will gather to take steps for healthier babies Saturday at the USC Sumter campus during the annual March for Babies event.

Activities include an opening program at 9 a.m. followed by a 1-, 2- and 3-mile walk beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the student union building. After the walk, participants will enjoy food and fun-filled activities.

The superhero sprint will be at 9:15 a.m. for kids one to 10 years old with a suggested donation of $20.

March for Babies raises money for research into the causes of premature birth and to fund community programs aimed at healthier pregnancies.
