More than 4-million babies were born in the United States last year and March of Dimes helped all of them through research, education, vaccines and breakthroughs. However, none of that would be possible without the financial support of the communities throughout the country. The St. Louis Divison of March of Dimes will be looking for your support today as they hold their 12th annual Bikers for Babies ride through the Metro East.
The 60-plus mile journey will kick off at Wild Country in Collinsville according to organizer Chris Scott. He says the route will be a little different than years past.
