Annual Bikers for Babies to Benefit March of Dimes

KENNESAW, GA -- It's full steam ahead for stronger, healthier babies. On Saturday, Sept. 18, die-hard bikers and weekend warriors will hit the road to raise urgently-needed funds for the March of Dimes and its mission to improve the health of all babies.

Registration for Bikers for Babies begins at 9:00 a.m., and kickstands go up at 11:00 a.m. for the official start of the ride. The fee is $25 for one rider and an additional $15 for a passenger.

The ride will begin at Hooters of Kennesaw (2012 Old Highway NW, Kennesaw, 30144) and will take bikers through historic Kennesaw and Acworth before ending back at Hooters for an after party and awards program.

In metro Atlanta, funds raised by Bikers for Babies support critical family resources such as the March of Dimes Angel II neonatal transport unit at Grady Hospital and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Family Support Program at Atlanta Medical Center.

Each year, the March of Dimes Georgia chapter funds more than $1.5 million in medical research and community grants with the goal of preventing birth defects, prematurity and infant death.

According to the March of Dimes, the most urgent infant health problem in the U.S. today is premature birth. It affects more than half a million babies each year, with the number growing every day. Babies born too soon are more likely to die or have disabilities.

If you miss the ride, you can still donate by visiting Georgia's March of Dimes website or calling 404-350-9800.
