MARCH FOR BABIES:A MOTHER OF A MOVEMENT™
New York City Campaign
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!
Join the movement!
This year, March for Babies: A Mother of a Movement™ has a bold vision. More than just a walk, it’s your entry into making a visible difference in your community now and for generations to come.
By participating in March for Babies, you’re lifting up communities for health equity, opening the door for all moms to have access to care and protecting the health of families by pushing for their rights. It’s no small feat—it’s a mother of a movement!
Start or join an existing team today, create an online fundraising page and let everyone know that you’re helping to make America a more equitable place and ensure that every mom and baby is healthy.
We THANK YOU for your continued support while our NYC walk location is on hiatus. For the in-person experience, we ask that you to join us at one of our market wide walks which will be hosted in NJ and Long Island.
Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment- East Rutherford, NJ: APRIL 30th
Long Island- Jones Beach State Park: May 14th
At each of these events, we will celebrate your efforts in advancing our mission to provide the very best outcomes for ALL Moms and babies. Opening ceremony times will vary based upon site.
Following each walk, visit Corporate Park our highlighted sponsor area, the Butterfly Wall in the Remembrance area, Play Place and our Mission/Advocacy area to learn more about the work we are doing in NY/NJ and across the country.
Teams who raise 10k or more are eligible for a team tent. This can be your personal celebration area and meeting place for your team. Contact your March of Dimes representive, Alexis Stone, to confirm your spot at the location of choice. [email protected]
Super Hero Sprint- our mini funrun for children under 10 will be happening throughout the morning. Participants will receive a Super Hero Cape, while supplies last!
If you cannot attend an in-person event, consider gathering your team for your own celebration walk within your local community. Be sure to send us photos of your team!
Thank you for helping to lead the fight for the health of all Moms and babies. We look forward to seeing you!
