The Celebration of New Beginnings event was founded by March of Dimes and Pfizer 13 years ago to increase public awareness of the progress, promise of cutting-edge research, and public health programs in the areas of maternal and infant health in New Jersey. The breakfast event traditionally honors government and/or corporate leaders by presenting them with the “FDR Visionary Award” for outstanding leadership and support of the mission of the March of Dimes to prevent premature birth, birth defects and infant mortality.
