March For Babies in Reston This Weekend

Hundreds are expected to take to Reston’s streets this Sunday, May 3, for the annual March For Babies.

The event raises money every year to expand programs and educate medical professionals about premature birth.

“Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick. Our team is walking in March for Babies because we want to do something about this,” one of the local teams participating in the event wrote on their fundraising page.

This Sunday’s march is one of the biggest taking place in northern Virginia. So far, local teams have raised more than $275,000.

The three-mile walk starts at 8 a.m., taking off from Reston Town Center at 11900 Market Street. Various checkpoints along the route will offer refreshments and a place to rest for a few moments.

Children between the ages of 1 and 10 can take part in the “Superhero Sprint.” Registering ahead of time ensures your little hero gets his or her own cape for the run!

Join in on the Reston march by signing up here. Those who can’t make the event can join a “Virtual Walk” online. Monetary donations can be made here.
