2019 brings great opportunity for the Central Ohio community to fight for the health of all moms and babies.  We ask that you join March of Dimes and 7,000 walkers that support a healthy start for every baby.


We invite you to fight for the health of all moms and babies by supporting the 2019 Central Ohio March for Babies!  More than 380,000 babies are born prematurely in the U.S. each year--that's once baby every two seconds.  We believe every mom and baby deserve a healthy start.  Together we're building healthy families and this year we have 4 million babies the best possible start.  Are you a business owner?  If so, check out our KidsZone and Food Vendor opportunities.  To better understand what our day of festivities look like you can also view the Central Ohio March for Babies 2019 Interactive MapDo you want to get your school involved?  We have programs for that.  You can learn more about how your school can participate by visiting our Students for Babies program.

Fisher Puckett

Due to a preeclampsia diagnosis, Fisher was born at 26 weeks on August 2, 2016. Weighing just 1lbs 9oz, Fisher spent time in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit fighting anemia, respiratory distress syndrome and Patent Ductus Arteriosus. The Puckett family attributes Fisher’s success to many of the discoveries of March of Dimes including surfactant therapy. Today, Fisher is a healthy 2 year old who loves visiting the aquarium and zoo, playing with his cousins and reading books. The 2019 Central Ohio March for Babies will be the Puckett family’s 3rd year supporting March of Dimes. By sharing Fisher’s story the Puckett family wishes to provide hope to those affected by premature birth.
