Saint Joseph Mount Sterling signs on to support March for Babies
Mount Sterling, Ky. (March 30, 2015)—Saint Joseph Mount Sterling, part of KentuckyOne Health, will again support the annual March of Dimes March for Babies for Bath, Menifee, Montgomery, Morgan, Powell and Rowan counties.
March for Babies is an annual event held by the March of Dimes to fund programs that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies, and research to find answers to the serious problems that threaten the health of infants.
The local 2015 March for Babies will take place on April 19, 2015 at Easy Walker Park (1395 Osborne Road) in Mount Sterling. Registration opens at 1:30 p.m., and the walk will begin at 2:30 p.m.
Last year, Saint Joseph Mount Sterling President Bennie Nolen served as Chairman of the event. In 2014, the event raised nearly $20,000.
“Saint Joseph Mount Sterling has long provided support for March for Babies,” said Nolen. “Each year our hospital delivers hundreds of babies and we have a vested interest in the health and wellness of those children. The March of Dimes does incredible work we’re honored to play a part in it.”
The March of Dimes has hosted March for Babies events across the country since 1970 and raised an incredible $2.6 billion for the cause. More than seven million people participate, donate and/or sponsor the events nationwide.
