March of Dimes Walk America event planned

Thursday, April 12, 2001

The March of Dimes Walk America is coming to Storm Lake on Saturday, May 12.

Registration will begin at Chautauqua Park at 8:30 a.m., with the walk beginning at 9:00 a.m. The March of Dimes promotes saving babies together.

Did you know you might be affected and didn't even know it? You have been touched by the March of Dimes if you received a polio vaccine; you are aware that alcohol, drugs and tobacco use during conception and pregnancy can lead to severe birth defects; your baby or a baby you know was cared for in a neonatal intensive care unit; and your baby or a baby you know received lung surfactant therapy preventing the premature infant from dying of respiratory distress syndrome.

The March of Dimes wants to hear your story. Please share how the March of Dimes has affected you or someone you love. Please fax your story to 712-277-4975, or email jzimmerman@modimes.org.

If you can't make the walk, your help is still needed!

Send a donation to March of Dimes Walk America, in care of the Pilot-Tribune team, P.O. Box 1187, Storm Lake, 50588, or drop off donations at the Pilot office, 111 W. 7th Street.
