Nearly 4 million babies are born in the U.S. every year, approximately 60,000 in Alabama, and each one of them needs us. The money you will raise will be a lifeline for moms and babies near you and across the country. Join more than 4,000 people at Railroad Park to walk in support of moms at every stage from preconception to post-delivery with research, programs and education - and it all comes together with a celebration at March for babies in Birmingham on April 27th, 2019. This event is chaired by Mr. John Trawick, CEO of Southern Power, and supported by companies across the North Central Alabama footprint.
March with us because every baby deserves the best possible start. Thanks to all our walkers, donors and volunteers who have accepted the challenge to help fight premature birth, birth defects and infant loss. We cannot achieve our mission without each one of you! March for Babies is a day for everyone. Together we hope, remember and celebrate at our walk sites nationwide. When you participate in March for Babies, you're raising critical funds to help tackle the biggest health threats to moms and babies. On Saturday, April 27, 2019, approximately 4,000 individuals will come together at Railroad Park in Birmingham to support the March of Dimes. Our goal is to raise $700,000 for a healthier future for babies.
