Sheriff Stan Sniff Selected as the March of Dimes Chair
Riverside County Sheriff Stan Sniff is the Chair for Inland Empire March for Babies 2011, March of Dimes’ biggest fundraiser and he is encouraging everyone to attend. The funds from the community will support March of Dimes research and community programs to help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies to begin healthy lives.
More than 1,500 people are expected to gather for the March for Babies Walk on Saturday, April 30, 2011 at 8:00 AM at Riverside Community College in Riverside. Inland Empire residents can sign up for the walk by visiting www.marchforbabies.org.
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. The March of Dimes is committed to reducing this toll by funding research to find the answers to premature birth and providing comfort and information to families who are affected.
“Let’s make our community a better place for our children” said Sheriff Sniff. “We have the privilege of giving babies in our communities a healthy start in life.”
