March of Dimes "March For Babies

The Annual March For Babies at Westchester Lagoon in Anchorage, AK, May 15, 2010.

  •  
    We had PERFECT weather for the March for Babies.
  •  
    I tried to capture the reflections off of Westchester Lagoon.
  •  
    I volunteered to be the emcee today. My "office" was a flatbed, which we used for a stage and to elevate the sound system.
  •  
    Plenty of banner went up for the March of Dimes.
  •  
    And since it was for the Alaska Chapter of the March of Dimes, we used plenty of duct tape.
  •  
    People could enter to win a family four-pack of tickets to see WALKING WITH DINOSAURS, coming to the Sully in August.
  •  
    People signed up under the hungry gaze of a Balloonasouras.
  •  
    DON'T MOVE!! The balloonasaurus tracks movement--it can't see you if you don't move. Much like the dreaded Doyouthinkhe-saurus.
  •  
    No shortage of contestants.
  •  
    The drawing will be on Monday, 5/17.
  •  
    Hundreds of people came out to walk.
  •  
    Hundreds of balloons decorated the event, and the strollers.
  •  
    Warm-ups before the walk.
  •  
    Come on now...don't want to pull a hammy.
  •  
    Starting to work up a little sweat.
  •  
    The music was up loud, but someone's bones were still creaking pretty loudly...oh wait, that's me.
  •  
    Get ready to walk!
  •  
    This kid was just cool. He was like, "Go ahead and take my picture. I'll wait."
  •  
    Walkers filled up the trail along the lagoon, heading toward the turn-around point 1.5 miles away.
  •  
    Walkers, runners, and people with strollers participated.
  •  
    The March of Dimes Mission: To improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. We carry out this mission through research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies' lives.
  •  
    Thank you to the many volunteers who helped make this event flow so smoothly.
  •  
    STU-DOG!!! It's Stu, from the Morning Zoo, Magic 98.9's noisy neighbor in the studio next door at 101.3 KGOT. And look, Daddy Stu brought the kids.
  •  
    Whenever I could, I brought entry slips and flyers to the busy parents and volunteers.
  •  
    BOUNCIN' BEARS was there with an inflatable castle for the kids to jump in.
  •  
    This was the shot that put a haze on the corner of many pictures. The person who shot the photo didn't know he was touching the lense...and I forgot to check it to see if it needed cleaning.
  •  
    Even with the fingerprint, the shots weren't too bad.
  •  
    Obligatory shot of deejay, station logos, and entry box.
  •  
    Obligatory shot of deejay, station logos, and entry box while deejay hams it up. Good Dino...that's a goood dino.
