Family teams

the heart of our event

Take steps to help babies

With 1 in 10 babies born too soon each year, the March of Dimes mission is more urgent than ever. At the heart of our event are family teams, filled with dedicated people like you. Every dollar they raise in March for Babies goes to fight prematurity and even the odds for our little ones. Team up with friends and family and watch your community come alive with hope and joy as you march with thousands of others in March for Babies.

    "We walk because my son Ryder was born at 23 weeks. Now, because of March of Dimes research and medical breakthroughs, he can walk with us. People like you made that possible!"

    "I walk in honor of my twin daughters, Isabella and Adrianna. Thank you for helping us raise awareness and money to allow every baby a healthy start in life."

    "We walk to honor our twin sons who were born prematurely and did not survive. Your support helps fight prematurity and change the premature narrative to one of happy and healthy beginnings with unscripted endings."

We need your help

Family teams are the heart of our mission. Each year many new family teams participate in March for Babies, but we need your help in registering even more. Wouldn’t it be great if every person ever touched by the mission of March of Dimes formed a family team? It would allow us to fund more research to ensure that more babies can be born on time and healthier. Do you know someone that has been touched by our mission? Will you ask them today to sign up to form a family team? If we can help, please email us at familyteams@marchofdimes.org.
