ABOUT THIS EVENT

Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton counties - get ready to March for Babies!

MORE INFO

Gulf Coast March for Babies is on the move in 2019!
We are proud to announce our new walk site - the Gulf Breeze Community Center! Join us there on Saturday, April 27th as we March for Babies! Located in the heart of Gulf Breeze, the Community Center offers ample space for our event and a beautiful scenic route to walk. So what are you waiting for? Register, gather friends, family and co-workers to join your team and rasie donations that will help fund important work as we fight for the health of all moms and babies.
1 in 10 babies are born premature in the United States. The preterm birth rate in Florida is at 10.2% which is higher than the national average. Statistics across the northwest panhandle are among the worst in the state. We believe that every baby deserves the best possible start. When you March for Babies, you make the future brighter for all.

Our ambassador

 

 

Kaison

We are excited to introduce our 2019 Ambassador - meet Kaison! Born 14 weeks premature, he weighed 1 lb 15.4 oz at birth and required specialized care from NICU doctors and nurses for 72 days. Kaison’s family participates in March for Babies each year to celebrate his amazing story and to give hope to other families with similar experiences. Since 2016, they’ve raised more than $5,000 to help fund March of Dimes research, community programs, education and other initiatives. Join Kaison at the Start Line on April 27th as we March for Babies!
