JOIN THE VIRTUAL WALK
Sign up now and participate on your own terms by raising money and awareness whenever its best for you. Your family, friends, colleagues and health care providers can join your Virtual Walk anytime. It’s a fun way for everyone to get involved without worrying about a scheduled event.
With nearly 4 million babies born each year, we have a lot of work to do to help them all. March of Dimes is giving them the best possible start in many ways. We support research, lead programs and provide education and advocacy. The Virtual Walk enables you to join the fight for the health of all moms and babies, even if you can’t attend one of our events. Your fundraising makes our best work possible.
Join our Virtual Walk, and you can march anywhere—at home, school, work, wherever you choose. Start your online fundraising team and join us without attending an event on a particular date. We offer helpful tools and tips to reach your goal. You’ll get regular updates from our team to keep you inspired and to motivate you to hit smaller goals along the way.
You’re a crucial part of a community that tackles the biggest health threats facing moms and babies. You join others who care about leveling the playing field for all families.

Whether you walk around the block, march in the park or do a 1K run at the local mall, when, where and how far you walk is up to you. And since it’s own your time, you can walk a little each day, if that works best. You may want to plan your Virtual Walk during April and May when millions of walkers from all over the country will be attending March for Babies events. If you start a team, be sure to post an update on your team page.Step 3. Helping every baby have a brighter future is an incredible reason to raise money. But we think you deserve something for your efforts. When you individually raise your first $100, you’ll receive the official March for Babies T-shirt in May. Keep raising funds to be eligible for even more great fundraising rewards. On June 30th, you will receive an email to redeem your fundraising rewards.Step 4. Interact with other virtual walkers by posting comments and using #MarchforBabies in the Connecting with Others section.Step 5. Share a photo of yourself and use #MarchforBabies to let us know where you are marching. You can also tag us @MarchofDimes on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.
