    March for Babies Sees Thousands Turn out to Help Babies

    Indianapolis Brings Out Marchers of All Ages to Honor Mom and to Celebrate, Honor and Remember Babies

    Thousands Turn Out to Fight for Babies, and Raise More Than $200,000 to Help Babies to Be Born Healthy

    Over 2,300 Indianapolis residents joined together in support of the smallest citizens of Indianapolis—babies—by participating in the 2014 March for Babies today. Many families came out as part of their Mothers’ Day weekend celebrations and White River State Park was packed with strollers, families and corporate teams who raised more than $200,000 to help babies be born healthy.

     

    ‘We’ve seen today how important the health of moms and babies are to the people of Indianapolis, said Tracey Drzich, March of Dimes Central Indiana Executive Director.  “When a baby is born, so is a Mom and we’re so proud to be part of a community where people come together for such a great cause. Helping our babies should be a top priority, and we’re excited about what we’ve accomplished here today.”

     

    Money raised by the event funds research, education and local community grants for programs that help provide prenatal care to women, comfort to families of critically ill babies, and find the preventions and cures for the threats to the lives and health of babies.

     

    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 1 in 9 in Indiana.  The March of Dimes is committed to reducing this toll by funding research to find the answers to premature birth and providing comfort and information to affected families. 

     

    The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide and its premier event, March for Babies, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
