We're getting ready to walk in March for Babies! It promises to be a fun day out with people who share our passion for improving the health of babies. There'll be family teams, company teams and people walking with friends - it's a great feeling knowing we're all helping real families. Join our event and walk with us to raise money for babies right here in our community!
 
March for Babies Fairfield will be held at Jennings Beach in Fairfield, CT. Our hub will be at Sandcastle Playground at the beach, and the walk route will traverse through the beach neighborhood, past Town Hall, and make its way back along Penfield & Jennings Beaches for a flat, paved 5K loop. New activities this year include Superhero Sprint, Mike the Magician, and a Petting Zoo! Don't miss our food trucks, touch a firetruck, and bounce house! Directions to Jennings Beach/Sandcastle Playground can be found online at: http://www.lisrc.uconn.edu/coastalaccess/site.asp?siteid=219 At the guard shack, go straight until you see the food trucks & Sandcastle Playground on your right.

2017 National Ambassador Ismael Torres Castrodad

 
Isamari Castrodad had a healthy pregnancy until she was hospitalized for a low level of amniotic fluid. Luckily she learned about premature birth from the March of Dimes and asked questions — because after she was anxious enough to get her fluid levels checked again, her son, Ismael, was born by emergency c-section 5 weeks early. Six days after discharge, he developed jaundice and RSV (a serious lung infection) and was treated in the hospital. He had to be rehospitalized with pneumonia and asthma, but today, Ismael is a charming, healthy 14-year-old from Puerto Rico who plays soccer and loves to sing. He and his family will travel around the country to raise awareness of premature birth and encourage moms to confidently ask questions about their health.
