    CU Basketball Coach Lappe Leads Effort to Improve the Health of Boulder Babies

    Boulder, CO, March 18, 2015 —

    One out of every 10 babies in Colorado will be born premature this year, and Colorado women’s basketball head coach Linda Lappe is working with the March of Dimes to change this.

    Coach Lappe, who is in her fifth year as CU’s women’s basketball head coach, knows how important the March of Dimes mission is. As someone who has seen first-hand the effects of premature birth, she has taken on the role of March for Babies Ambassador for the second year in a row to raise awareness and important funding to provide for babies who are born premature or with birth defects.

    “I want to be involved with March of Dimes to help bring more awareness of how important it is to get babies off to a great start in life. A baby being born is one of life’s most fascinating, exciting and nerve wracking events,” said Lappe. “Each family deserves to have the process go as smoothly as possible and I am honored to help in whichever way is most beneficial.”

    March for Babies, the March of Dimes largest fundraiser, helps fund lifesaving research and educational programs aimed at helping moms have healthy babies. Last year in Boulder County more than $117,000 was raised. 

    “March for Babies gives community leaders a unique opportunity to support our important mission,” said Kathryn Marshall, State Director for the March of Dimes Colorado/Wyoming Chapter. “We’re so excited to have Coach Lappe on board to help us. Her passion for the cause and commitment to helping our babies will be a huge driving factor in the success of our event. We are grateful for her support.”

    Boulder County residents can sign up today at www.marchforbabies.org and start a team with co-workers, family or friends. This year the walk will be held on Saturday, April 25 on the Duane Physics Lawn on the CU campus.

    Premature birth is the most urgent infant health problem in the U.S. today. It affects more than half a million babies each year, including one out of 10 babies born in Colorado. The March of Dimes is committed to funding research to find the answers to problems that continue to threaten the lives and the health of babies. Funds raised by March for Babies in Colorado help support prenatal wellness programs, research grants, NICU family support programs and advocacy efforts for stronger, healthier babies.
