Sunday: Walk and Shop for the March of Dimes

March for Babies/Credit: March of Dimes Hundreds will be walking to support the health of premature infants at the March of Dimes’ March for Babies (Fairfax) Sunday, May 1, at Reston Town Center.

The march begins at 10 a.m., with on-site registration at 9 a.m. There will be a walk, picnic, music, and children’s activities to support March of Dimes.

Funds raised in the March for Babies support research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. They are also used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care.

March for Babies events are held annually in about 500 communities, the March of Dimes says.

Also Sunday, march participants and visitors to Reston Town Center can shop to give back to the March of Dimes. Kendra Scott will have food and drinks and will donate 20 percent of all purchases from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. to the March of Dimes. The store will also make a donation with online purchases during that time frame. Just call the Reston store (571-599-7792) to let them know.

“Kendra Scott is a great organization, and we’re so pleased to have them in RTC,” said Pete Otteni, senior vice president of development at Boston Properties. “Their commitment to charitable giving fits perfectly with RTC ethos, and I want to make sure that we do everything we can to bring out Reston’s finest to shop at Kendra Scott and support the March of Dimes.”

Reston Town Center owner Boston Properties has raised more than $10,000 in donations to the cause. To donate, visit their online fundraising page.
