Additional information or comments: The March of Dimes has asked us out to return the annual March for Babies. It is there largest fundraiser of the year and there is usually over 10,000 people in attendence. We will be entertaining kids of all ages in their Family Area.

We will be changing the parking garage and storing our totes and empties in our vehicles.

They want a few of us dressed by 7:30 AM to 8:00 AM. People can come in as they can though. However, traffic and parking gets more difficult after 8:00 AM. However, KCMO Police did an excellent job of managing it last year. Registration starts at 8:00 AM. The Race starts at 10:00 AM. Usually the event winds down around noon.

Lets plan on meeting at the H&R Parking Garage at 7:00 AMish. Here is the address: 1345 Main Street and the entrance should be on 13th Street. I plan in being there at 7:00 AM. We will need to be able be dressed and ready between 7:30AM and 8:00 AM.

My cell is 740.804.1285 and I will be available until 7:30 AM.

I'll be there. Hopefully I'll have my Jedi completed on Saturday or else I'll just be support. I will not be in costume until after 8, since my family will be having breakfast at our company tent at 7:30, but after that I will be all yours.

Does everyone participate in the walk itself? Or just hang out until the crowds return?

Last year we did not participate in the walk itself. Mostly hanging out in the crowd along where all the tents were taking photos.

The first year we did this event (it was also my first time trooping a charity walk) I fellt awkward standing around (long story...) so we actually went and walked the route with everyone (Me and Sarah in costume, and my mom and kids also in their civies)... So you CAN, but it wasn't exactly fun either Smile
