Important Update

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!

 
 
 
 
ABOUT MARCH FOR BABIES

Join the movement! This year, March for Babies: A Mother of a Movement™ has a bold new 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!

Walking at home? Request a Walk-in-a-Box!

With the present circumstances, March of Dimes Chicago understands that not everyone can make it to one of our four in-person walks this year. For those people, we’ll be mailing a walk box so that everyone is still able to participate. If you will NOT be walking in person with March of Dimes at one of our four Chicagoland events, and wish to receive a box with March of Dimes branded supplies for your walk at home, please contact Delaney Dahlstrom. (Limit one box per household)
