March for Babies

Join Team Upstate - March for Babies

A 3-mile walk to raise money to support lifesaving research, community services, education and advocacy - so that one-day all babies will be born healthy. But we'll have to walk to get there!

Team Upstate welcomes all Upstate students, employees, volunteers, advocates, friends & families!
