March of Dimes Phoenix Run for Babies


Join us for our inaugural race, meant to enhance and complement our premier walking event, Phoenix March for Babies. Run for Babies is a timed & accurately measured 5K through the streets of downtown Phoenix, beginning and ending at the Capitol.

Celebrate the steps taken to help our Arizona babies towards a healthy start in life. After the race, join the over 7,000 walkers and eat a picnic lunch while enjoying live entertainment. Meet up with your family to visit the bounce houses at the Kids' Zone, while stopping by our Mission Tent to learn more about how March of Dimes has been helping babies for more then 75 years.
