March for Babies is the largest fundraising event for March of Dimes. The local Nevada State Bank on College Parkway is having a fundraising garage sale in the parking lot on Saturday. With a little help from Massage Envy, they will give individuals chair massages for donations. On Saturday, May 1 at Mills Park, you can sign up for the walk. One out of every seven babies born in Nevada is born preterm. Two hundred babies born each year in Nevada will never celebrate their first birthday. Those are very scary numbers.
