March For Babies Kickoff

Posted: Updated:

The annual March of Dimes March for Babies is three months away, but Erie teams and supporters are already gearing up to get you involved.

They gathered at Erie Insurance arena for a kickoff event and to say thank you to some of the top fund raising individuals, and corporate teams.

Last year, three thousand walkers raised more than 300 thousand dollars and organizers want to do even better in 2014.

According to the chair of this year's march, Debbie Burbules of UPMC Hamot, and 7-year old Amelia Lyons a member of the 2014 ambassador family, over the years the money raised touches everyone.

"Whether it was for the polio vaccine, or all the different newborn tests, it's really important for us to keep raising money to help us find new ways to have healthy babies," said Burbules.

"They like made medicine so I could live, cause I would have died without it," said Amelia Lyons. 

Lilly Broadcasting is always a proud supporter of the March for Babies.

This year's event is April 27th at Presque Isle. To learn more call the March of Dimes office at (814) 833-4941 or visit march of
