    What is March for Babies?
    March for Babies is the walk that saves babies! As the March of Dimes biggest fund-raiser, March for Babies supports research and programs to help prevent or treat premature birth, birth defects and other threats to babies’ health. Since its beginning in 1970, March for Babies has raised more than $1.8 billion to help give babies a fighting chance. Thanks to you, locally in 201 we raised more than $35,000! The walk keeps growing thanks to the generosity of the Tri-State!

    How big is March for Babies?
    Now in its 43rd year, nationally the March for Babies is expected to draw nearly half a million walkers. Overall, more than 8.5 million men, women and children participated as sponsors, volunteers and walkers in the year 2014. Locally we look for as many as 3500 to walk with us in 2014.

    What is the March of Dimes?
    It’s the nonprofit health organization that’s leading the way in the fight against prematurity! Nearly half a million babies are born prematurely every year — and the number is increasing. March of Dimes lifesaving research is seeking causes and treatments for prematurity and birth defects. Log Onto our website at www.marchofdimes.org and learn more about the March of Dimes. Our advocacy efforts in state and federal government are making it possible for more parents to get health coverage and care for their babies and children. And our educational programs are letting women know about the signs of preterm labor and what to do if they have them. With your support, we will reach the day when every baby can be born full term and healthy.

    How are the funds raised in March for Babies used?
    The March of Dimes spends 77 percent of the money raised in March for Babies on research and programs that promote the health of babies. By walking and raising money, you help us:
    • Support all-important research offering preventions and solutions for babies born too soon or with birth defects
    • Fund programs in your community that give moms-to-be the best chance of having a healthy baby
    • Provide comfort and information to families with a baby in intensive care
    • Advocate for newborn screening, and health insurance for all pregnant women and children
