Our March for Babies celebration is still on, but it looks a little different! We are rapidly preparing for a new, virtualized event that will be fun and engaging for everyone. This change in format aligns with the newly released CDC guidance for large events, to help ensure the safety and health of our participants. More details on our new format to come soon!
COVID-19 is only compounding the current maternal and infant health crisis facing our nation. While much remains unknown about the virus and its effects on pregnant women, unfortunately, we know from past public health emergencies that pregnant and lactating women are often overlooked as interventions to prevent or treat the disease are developed and distributed. As we face this public health emergency together, it is more important than ever before that we continue to fundraise and rally to fight for the health of all moms and babies. We need your help now more than ever!
I want to reassure you that our March for Babies celebration is still on! We need your help in continuing to rally the community around our cause for healthier moms and babies. We rely heavily on the engagement and fundraising activities in the time leading up to our event to support research, advocacy, and programs dedicated to moms and babies. We are excited to share new, virtual ways for us to connect and fundraise in the coming weeks. We will share more details here and by emailing our participants.
And don’t forget - March of Dimes is here to serve as a resource for you, providing the latest information on COVID-19 on our webpage. You can also learn about our newly launched COVID-19 Intervention and Support Fund to ensure families stay informed about COVID-19, and that interventions are developed with moms and babies top of mind and then distributed so everyone across our country has access. Find more here.
