The March of Dimes’ March for Babies will begin at 9 a.m. Sunday, May 3, at Kennebec Valley YMCA, according to a news release from the March of Dimes.

Erin and Troy Fletcher, of Albion, Ambassador family, plan to walk in memory of their son. They were so excited to become parents and were looking forward to starting their family. At 35 weeks and one day, they heard the words no parents should ever hear; there was no heartbeat, no movement, their baby had passed away. Erin Fletcher delivered Liam Dan Fletcher, stillborn, at 35 weeks and four days, five weeks early.

The March of Dimes extends an invitation to follow this inspiring family as they try to reach their fundraising goal of $1,100 for the event.

To sign up to walk and fundraise, email or call 800-525-9255.
