Important Update

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!

 
 
 
 
ABOUT MARCH FOR BABIES

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 500 people at the Coastal Empire 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 April 28, 2018.

Foreman Family

Welcome the Foreman family as our 2018 Coastal Empire March for Babies Ambassador Family! Amber Kate Foreman was born on January 28, 2016, at 24 weeks. She was 1lb 10oz, but she was a fighter from the start. After numerous blood transfusions, obstacles, and 110 days in the NICU, the Foremans are happy to say that Amber Kate is now one happy and lively child! The Foremans contribute her successful outcome to God and the support they received from family, friends, and the March of Dimes. The March of Dimes works diligently and tirelessly to ensure that babies like Amber Kate have a fighting chance. Right now, babies need all the help they can get. Premature birth affects about 380,000 babies here in the United States. The Foreman Family is serving as the Costal Empire Ambassador family to get the message out about this terrible problem. Please join them as they help the March of Dimes fight prematurity, so more babies can get the strongest start possible.
