Chad Supports March for Babies

I participate to help all parents and families experience the joy of a healthy baby. With nearly 4 million babies born each year, we have a lot of work to do to help them all. The funds I raise enable March of Dimes to support research, lead programs and provide education and advocacy that truly makes a difference to families in our community and across the country. Out of 100 major cities in the USA for 2017, Detroit, finsihed 100th by having the highest counts of pre-mature births, stillborn children and number of addicted children. 

Since then, the funds raised have contributed to the following local initiatives:

  • Two Supportive Pregnancy Care Sites, one in Detroit and one in Pontiac.
  • Training for maternal and infant health providers at Henry Ford Hostipal in Wyandotte and St. Joseph Mercy to improve health outcomes for moms and babies.
  • Increased services, as well as care packages for families with babies in Neonatal ICU (NICU) at Mott Children's Hospital, Ascension St. John's Hospital, and St. Joseph Mercy.
  • Currently Establishing a NICU Family Support Program at Detroit Children's Hospital at DMC (launching Q4 2022). 

There is more that needs to be done, but with your help, we can continue to make a positive impact.

WE NEED TO UNITE, CONNECT AND FIGHT FOR FAMILIES

With preterm birth rates continuing to rise, the U.S. remains among the most dangerous developed nations for childbirth, especially for women and babies of color.

At March for Babies: A Mother of a Movement you're lifting up communities, creating connections and taking action to make America a more equitable place and ensure that every mom and baby is healthy.

Together, we’re marching to raise funds and awareness to transform the health of all families!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
