Here in the Coulee Region and throughout Wisconsin, 10.5 percent of all live births are premature, occurring before 37 weeks completed gestation, and quite often, without any known reason.

Team Kendall Rose is one of many Coulee Region teams who join the March for Babies in La Crosse ...

Our ambassador
Say hello to David Landis of Westby, Wisconsin, our 2014 Ambassador at the La Crosse March for Babies! David will be accompanied by his parents, Ben and Rachel Landis; brother, Silas; and sister, Olivia, as they join us at their very first March for Babies event at Myrick Park this year. While the Landis family is new to the March for Babies, they are very familiar with the March of Dimes mission, navigating the challenges of Davids birth defects with persistent faith, hope, and love. Born in 2007 with Spina Bifida and related complications, David has already exceeded his doctors initial prognoses, today he is a first grade student at Westby Elementary School and particularly loves to do hands-on building projects with blocks, Lego bricks, crafts, or other artistic endeavors. He is able to walk with crutches, and according to his mom, he will occasionally just take off, doing 20 or 30 steps without any help at all. He is incredibly determined, Rachel said. He never gives up, ever. He is definitely a miracle! The March of Dimes would like to thank the Landis family for stepping up in 2014, sharing their story, and helping us work to prevent birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality here in the Coulee Region and throughout the entire country. Not enough people realize what it is like for these families, how hard they struggle, noted Rachel. If we can prevent this in the future, if we can ease that burden in any way, then we have accomplished something important. It is everybodys duty to do what they can.
