This Saturday Culver-Stockton College will host its inaugural March of Dimes event.

The Northeast Missouri March for Babies is open to the public and will take place on Saturday, April 29 at Richeson Track at NX Level Field. Registration starts at 10 a.m. with the walk beginning at 11 a.m.

To sign up to march or to donate, visit marchforbabies.org.

The march will be hosted by the Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda and the Eta Sigma chapter of the Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority; both organizations are national partners with the March of Dimes.

This student-hosted event would not have happened if Kimberly Clark, FBLA-PBL National Secretary, was not invited to attend a March for Babies at Missouri Southern State University in Joplin, Mo. All national officers had a goal of attending a march. However, after learning about the process of holding the march and the importance of advocating in the community she felt moved to hold one on campus.
