The March of Dimes mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing prematurity, birth defects and infant mortality. Each year, over half a million babies are born too soon – one in every seven babies in our area.
That means every minute of every day, a baby arrives early in America. Some go home healthy – but others spend their lives fighting health problems from their early arrival. Some babies never make it home at all. Premature birth is the number one cause of infant death in the first month of life; one-third of babies who die before their first birthday are touched by prematurity.
The March of Dimes is committed to putting an end to this epidemic. But we need your help. To learn more about the March of Dimes, please visit www.marchofdimes.com  or register your team for March for Babies at www.marchforbabies.org .
