Team Front Street and the March of Dimes

The March of Dimes is an amazing organization that makes a very real impact in the lives of babies and their families throughout the world. Front Street's very own Seth Lane is honored to serve on the March of Dimes North Central Florida's Board of Directors this year. Please join Seth and Team Front Street as a we work to raise $5,000.00 to support our local March of Dimes.

Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick. The Front Street Team is walking in March for Babies because we want to do something about this but we can't do it alone. We need your help! Please support our team by joining us in our mission. If you can't walk with us, please help us reach our goal of raising $5,000.00 by making a donation today. Any amount counts! Thank you for helping us give all babies a healthy start.


The 8.5 mile event takes place on Saturday March 22, 2014 starting at the Westwood Middle School Athletic Field on NW 34th St in Gainesville. Registration starts at 7:00 am, and the race begins at 8:00 am. It is guaranteed to be a wonderful morning full of food, fun, and festivities celebrating the march for healthier babies.

The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
