March for Babies

Item by Chris Graham

The local March of Dimes is hosting the 2008 Augusta County March for Babies this weekend in Staunton.

Funds raised in conjunction with the event will be contributed to the worldwide March of Dimes event to prevent birth defects in newborns.

The fund-raiser will be held at the Gypsy Hill Park Bandstand on Saturday beginning at 9 a.m.
