Recently, we have added a section on this website that is dedicated to keeping everyone informed on the local runs and walks in our area. Sacramento is known for having great running and walking trails- and everywhere you go, you can find someone with their running shoes on and “hitting the pavement”.
This month, the March of Dimes will be hosting their “March of Dimes- March for Babies Walk” on April 28th. This is a great organization that helps so many families in the area- that I highly recommend everyone going out to support.
March of Dimes March for Babies is the longest-running and most widely recognized walking event in the nation, generating more than $1.5 billion for the March of Dimes over its 42-year history. This fundraiser incorporates thousands of volunteers participating in a fun-filled day of walking to raise money to support lifesaving research and programs to make sure every baby gets a chance for a healthy start in life. Each walker raises money from friends, family and business associates, and then enjoys the festivities at one of our many California locations. Marches range from 1 to 10 miles—most are about 6 miles.
So if you are able to make it out on this Saturday morning- join others at the West steps of the State Capital at 8:30am to walk for a great cause!
