march babies 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (8/30/13) – On Saturday, September 14, 2013, hundreds of families, businesses and organizations will join together to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the March of Dimes as they March for Babies.
 
The family - friendly event will be held at the Trover Wellness Park at Baptist Health Madisonville. Registration begins at 10 a.m. and opening ceremonies will begin at 10:30 a.m. Participants will also enjoy kid’s activities, lunch, music and more.
 
The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Last year, more than four million babies were born in the U.S. and the March of Dimes helped each and every one through 75 years of vaccines, research, education and breakthroughs.
 
The 2013 Hopkins County March for Babies is presented by Baptist Health Madisonville. “Baptist Health Madisonville has made great strides in reducing preterm births, inductions, and c-sections, as well as in improving the birth weight of the babies born at our hospital,” Stacey Beaven, Vice President, Nursing at Baptist Health Madisonville and chairman of the 2013 walk. “We’ve made a commitment to do the right thing, always, and we truly see it as an honor to help families bring new life into the world. Many of our victories have been made possible by the work of the March of Dimes and we are proud to support this important cause.”
 
The 2013 Hopkins County Ambassador Family is The Matheny Family. Mason Lucas was born at 34 weeks, 5 pounds 3 ounces. He spent 14 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Baptist Health Madisonville, but is now a strong and healthy one-year-old. Mason’s family credits research, technology and programs funded by the March of Dimes with helping save their son’s life.
