About This Activity

The March of Dimes Mission:

To improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. We fund research to understand problems & discover answers leading to prevention & treatment of premature children, birth defects and infant mortality.

We help moms have full-term pregnancies &  healthy babies and support families by providing comfort when their baby needs help to survive and thrive.

This year's addition of the 5K Run is another way that you can support our mission and help save babies! 

You will be taking off from Kankakee's Historical Museum district, running though a beautifully established Kankakee neighborhood full of families, volunteers and supporters cheering you on.  As you return to the Museum, you will greeted by local radio celebrity Bill Yonka of WKAN announcing your name, information and run time. 

The day's event will end with fun for adults and kids, activities and food! 

Please come see what March of Dimes and Kankakee have to offer for the runner in you!
