Families and businesses throughout the greater Pee Dee are invited to attend and start raising funds for March for Babies, which will be held on May 6, 2017 at the McLeod Health and Fitness.

For more than 75 years, moms and babies have benefited from March of Dimes research, education, vaccines, and breakthroughs.
