Our ambassador

 

 

The McQuaide Family

Nichole and Adam know the significant role that March of Dimes research played in helping their twins grow and thrive. As the 2020 Pittsburgh March for Babies Ambassador Family, they will share their story and help raise awareness and funds in support of healthier moms and stronger babies. They hope their story can provide promise for other families and help March of Dimes level the playing field for all moms and babies, no matter their age, socio-economic background or demographics.
