Welcome to the 2019 Skylands March for Babies

This spring, you'll be joining thousands of people in cities across the country for March for Babies, and helping to raise critical funds to support research, advocacy and programs for the health of all moms and babies. At March for Babies we come together to empower, honor and advocate for moms, families and babies everywhere.

Rain or Shine! Join us for the Skylands March for Babies to raise critical funds to help tackle the biggest health threats to moms and babies and empower moms with programs, information and tools to have healthier pregnancies and families. Registration will be in the Richards Building of the Sussex County Fairgrounds. The walk will start under the balloon arch outside the Richards Building, loop around the Fairgrounds twice then back to the arch to celebrate, for a total of 3.5 miles. Again this year, we will honor all babies through our areas of Hope, Remember and Celebrate throughout the event. Look forward to Kids Activities, petting zoo, Music and Entertainment from 102.3 WSUS and lunch provided by Ronetco Shop Rite for our fundraising participants and volunteers. Parking is located near the fields surrounding the Administration Building. Please contact: JoAnn Bartoli at jbartoli@marchofdimes.org with any questions about the event.

Dylan Gordon

Like most first time parents, Lisa and Bill Gordon of Hampton Twp, NJ were filled with anticipation of their son's birth. Little Dylan was apparently eager to be born as well- two months before he we was due, he was already causing contractions. Knowing he needed more time, doctors were able to delay his arrival somewhat with a medication called Procardia. Though Dylan was still born early, steroid shots helped in the development of his lungs. It turns out the wait was healthy in other ways that his parents couldn't even imagine. Dylan was born Aug 30, 2011, just one day before the New Jersey state law mandated testing of newborns for congenital heart disease went into effect. Set to go home on Sept 1, doctors performed a precautionary measure know as a pulse oximetry test and discovered an abnormality. Dylan's oxygen level was below 20% and despite his initial healthy appearance, he had a life threatening condition that required immediate surgery. Dylan was transferred to a medical facility that could treat this condition, at this point near death. Thanks to the quick decisions made by his doctors as a result of this screening, treatment was possible. Dylan's surgery was a success and today he is a healthy active seven year old. Dylan's story underscores the importance of the lifesaving newborn screenings of which March of Dimes advocates so strongly for. The state of New Jersey, currently screens for 55 disorders within 48 hours of birth. Through lifesaving research, education and advocacy efforts, March of Dimes is ensuring that babies like Dylan have the very best chance at a healthy life. Join us on May 5th to meet Dylan and help us to fight for the health of all moms and babies.
