    Local Business Woman Leads March of Dimes Effort to Improve Health of Spokane Babies

    Spokane, WA, March 19, 2014 —

    The March of Dimes is fighting the epidemic of prematurity.  On average, a baby is born too soon every minute. More than 8,700 of Washington’s babies will be born prematurely this year, and business leader Marty Dickinson is working with the March of Dimes to change this.

     

    Marty Dickinson, who is the Marketing and Communications Executive Vice President at Sterling Bank, knows how important the March of Dimes mission is. As a Mother of three with two of her children born premature, she has taken on the role of March for Babies Chair to raise awareness and important funding to provide for babies who are born premature or with birth defects. Ms. Dickinson has made the commitment to raise $75,000 in new revenue as part of the overall goal of $175,000.

     

    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 Spokane more than $170,000 was raised.  This year, March for Babies Chair Marty Dickinson will focus on recruiting new companies to participate and lead the community in making a difference for the health of moms and babies.

     

    “As a business leader, this campaign gives me and my company a unique opportunity to help the community that I love. And as a Mother, I can’t think of a more important cause than our babies,” said Marty Dickinson, who will be asking other local businesses for their support. “One in 10 of our babies here in Washington are born premature, and that’s just not acceptable.  It takes leaders in our community working together to ensure more moms have healthy pregnancies.  More than 20,000 companies are partnering in March for Babies to help reduce the premature birth rate and improve the health of babies.”

     

    Spokane residents can sign up today at www.marchforbabies.org and start a team with co-workers, family or friends.  Last year, more than 1,000 people attended the event -- which will be held this year on April 26th at Gonzaga University, Jundt Art Museum.

     

    “We’re so excited to have Marty on board to help us in Spokane,” said State Director Jean Allenbach with the March of Dimes Washington Chapter. “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 commitment.”
