ABOUT THIS EVENT
Nearly 4 million babies are born in the U.S. every year, and each one needs us. The money you raise will be a lifeline for moms and babies near you and across the country. Join more than 3,500 people at the Miami 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 on Saturday, April 28, 2018.
 
To access the park, there are two entrances: Miller Road (SW 56 Street) and Bird Road (SW 40 Street). There will be parking attendants guiding drivers to the main event area parking.

Selena Lucia

 
At just 25 weeks something was telling me that we needed to check up on our little peanut. A few days later we would be faced with the most challenging obstacle of our lives... Being told by our doctors that the only way to save us both was to deliver the baby now… 15 weeks too early. Although weighing just 1lb 6oz, Selena Lucia came into the world determined and feisty! It was as if she knew what she had to do even though every step was a learning experience for us. The moment I was finally able to hold my itty bitty Selena was the moment I felt I was waiting for my entire life. Every day I thought, how can these tiny precious babies be so resilient? After fighting for 94 days in the NICU…our Selena was able to come home with us! During our time with Selena in the NICU we learned so much about the March of Dimes; what the organization does and how they directly impacted our lives. We knew we had to share our story and somehow give back. Today Selena is a very healthy, smart, energetic ball of deliciousness. Hopefully you will never have to know the struggles she had to encounter. But because we know, we feel it is our duty to share our experiences and bring hope for other families.
