Volunteers annually collect contributions for the March of Dimes and participate in a large group walk formerly held at the Oak Ridge Marina and Melton Hill Greenway and more recently at Bissel Park.  Walks are usually held during the month of May. Funds raised are used to support programs that assist babies born prematurely or with birth defects.

The final numbers are in for the 2008 Anderson County March of Dimes March for Babies. Team UT-Battelle placed third in the corporate teams, raising $6,365. Teressa McKinney and Teresa Williams tied for second place in the top-3 individual category. Co-captains McKinney and Williams offer their thanks to all those who contributed, walked, purchased candy bars and helped to sell candy bars. Team UT-Battelle sold over 80 cases of the World's Finest Chocolate candy bars in this fundraising effort.
