Faces of the March of Dimes mission

  • Ordinary families doing extraordinary things to help babies
  • People sharing their story across the country to raise awareness
  • Volunteers showing others why it is so important to get involved

Each year the March of Dimes selects a special child whose life was saved by our research, programs or educational campaigns to give a face to our mission. As a living symbol of the March of Dimes mission to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects and infant mortality, the National Ambassador plays a vital role in our efforts to save babies.
