This year’s route is 3.5 miles and it starts at 10:00 a.m. at Elmwood Park (700 S Jefferson Street, Roanoke, VA 24011).

Last year was JSC’s first year to participate in the March of Dimes, March for Babies event. JSC was motivated to participate by a few of the staffs’ personal experiences with premature births and chromosomal abnormalities. In 2016, JSC raised over $2,000 and had 30+ staff participants in the March for Babies walk. These contributions were combined with the larger Roanoke March of Dimes fundraising effort. The money raised was donated to the local chapter for their use in research and education.
