March of Dimes

What is March of Dimes?

It’s an organization that fights to save babies’ lives. It does this in communities across the country by helping babies be born healthy.

The March of Dimes uses the money you raise in March for Babies to help sick babies get better. It helps scientists do research to find cures for birth defects and to learn why some babies are born too soon. It works to make sure that women who are having babies go to the doctor or a clinic. And it teaches them the importance of taking care of themselves, eating nutritiously, and taking vitamins. All this helps the mom to stay healthy, so she can have a healthy baby.

By teaming up with the March of Dimes in March for Babies, you’re doing some really important stuff to help babies be born healthy and grow up healthy.

We are walking to give every baby a healthy start. Happy March for Babies!
