The March of Dimes is one of the best-known charities in the country. They help mothers have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. And if something goes wrong, they offer comfort and information to families. They research the problems that threaten babies and work on preventing them. The March of Dimes was originally established by FDR to fight polio. The mission focus was shifted from the fight against polio to premature birth and birth defects in 1958.
The March for Babies is the March of Dimes biggest fundraiser and America’s favorite walking event. Money raised in March for Babies supports the March of Dimes mission to give every baby a healthy start. They have been walking since 1970 and have raised an incredible $1.8 billion to benefit all babies. Every year, more than 7 million people get involved in March for Babies as sponsors, volunteers or participants.
