March for Babies – Balboa Park
Hosted by: March of Dimes
First 5 San Diego participates to help all moms and families experience the joy of a healthy baby. With nearly 4 million babies born each year, we have a lot of work to do to help them all. The funds we raise enable March of Dimes to support research, lead programs and provide education and advocacy that truly makes a difference to families in our community and across the country. If you believe, like we do, that every baby deserves the best possible start, please march with me or make a donation to support this community effort. Together we can fight for the health of all moms and babies.
Please consider creating your own team, or donating. You can check out our First 5 San Diego team by clicking here.

8th Annual Mass Creativity Day
Hosted by: The New Children’s Museum
Mass Creativity Day is a free community gathering in celebration of creativity at The New Children’s Museum and its adjacent park. It takes place as the culmination of seven art-making workshops held in underserved communities around San Diego County, most of which have not otherwise had access to art-based, early-learning opportunities. Mass Creativity Day provides these groups of Latinx, LGBT, refugee/immigrant, and others with free bus transportation, free admission to the Museum, and a family outing full of live music, performances, food, hands-on art-making activities, and more.
