MORE INFO

March of Dimes Minnesota invites you to march on Satruday, April 27th at the 2019 March for Babies at Mall of America! Communities, families, and professionals alike will come together to show their support for the March of Dimes mission to fight for the health of ALL moms and babies. This is a time to honor and remember the babies we have lost and bring awareness to premature birth and maternal health. We will have interactive activities and elements for families to explore and learn more about our mission. Parents of preemies will receive a purple lei and parents who have experienced infant loss will receive a white lei. March of Dimes Minnesota is looking forward to a fun and rewarding event that brings our community together and builds a brighter future for us all!

The DiMarco Family

The DiMarco Family has an incredible story to share. Pictured are Gavin and Beckham, the second set of premature twins in the DiMarco Family. Gavin and Beckham were born at 30 weeks weighing only 3 pounds 6 ounces and 3 pounds. After spending 56 and 58 days in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), Gavin and Beckham were finally able to move home with their four older siblings and parents, Andy and Lisa. Gavin and Beckham are now happy and healthy two year olds keeping their parents on their toes and bringing so much love, laughter, and entertainment to the entire DiMarco Family. The DiMarco Family inspires us here at March of Dimes Minnesota every day. If the DiMarco's story inspires you too, then share your own March for Babies story on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using the hashtag #MarchforBabies #GreaterTwinCities
