County workers for March of Dimes

4/18/2014, 2:04 p.m.

DeKalb County employees will step out for kids on April 26 at the March of Dimes’ annual March for Babies at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

They will join metro residents, businesses and other teams for the 9 a.m. walk.

Over the last decade, Team DeKalb has raised more than $174,000 for the nonprofit that supports neonatal intensive care units at local hospitals and other programs for high-risk babies.

For 2014, the county’s goal is to raise at least $15,000.

Employees have held fundraising events, including skate night, a bowling tournament, kickball tournament, basketball tournament and hot dog sales, to help them reach their goal.

The Georgia World Congress Center is at 285 Andrew Young International Blvd. N.W.

To help or join Team DeKalb, contact Nakisha Edmonds at nmedmonds@dekalbcountyga.gov or 404-297-3912.
