The March of Dimes leads the fight for the health of all moms and babies. The funds raised support MoD research, programs, education, and advocacy needed to give all babies the best possible start. Approximately half a million babies in the U.S. are born prematurely or with birth defects each year. These babies face a greater likelihood of death or disability or lifelong health conditions. Please join us in raising money for a worthy cause.

Support to moms and their babies is even more important today given the COVID-19 pandemic and we want to do whatever we can to help families. As a mother of a premature baby, I understand the need for funds to support the March of Dimes.”
