March of Dimes to host 2019 March for Babies

LUBBOCK, Texas -

On Saturday, April 27, the Lubbock chapter of the March of Dimes will hold its annual March for Babies at the American Windmill Museum.

Luke Gamez was born at Covenant Children's at only 26 weeks, weighing less than two pounds. 

Luke is this year's March for Babies ambassador. Funds from the march will provide families with information and tools to ensure a healthy pregnancy. Mother Jennifer Gamez said Luke's experience is a chance to show other parents that they are not alone.

"Sharing your story helps support other moms, dads and grandparents because seeing someone like Luke go through what he went through, it helps encourage them that, you know, maybe they're child will be okay," she said.

The walk is free and the public is welcome to attend, but teams and individuals are encouraged to raise donations to help fund our local chapter of the March of Dimes.This year goal is $250,000.

Registration begins at 10:00 a.m. and the walk will begin at 10:30 a.m. For more information or to sign up for the walk, visit marchforbabies.org/event/lubbock.

To RSVP, call: Brittani Kite, bkite@marchofdimes.org or (806)686-0306
