Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. partnership with the March of Dimes is a major fraternity initiative under the International Program of Social Action. Phi Beta Sigma’s partnership with the March of Dimes is entitled “Building Stronger Fathers.” The March of Dimes is the very first partnership of Phi Beta Sigma. This embodies the importance the fraternity places on the mission of the March of Dimes.
Through Building Stronger Fathers, Phi Beta Sigma facilitates the development of educational programs to include teenage pregnancy prevention, health life-styles, prematurity awareness and other health information that helps the male and the family, improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Building Stronger Fathers has three components: 1. Promoting Fatherhood through various educational programming, 2. Raising Funds for March for Babies to prevent birth defects and premature birth, and 3. Mentoring our youth.
Building Stronger Fathers, under the leadership of International President Honorable Micheal E. Cristal, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity continues to break records and make strides to mentor our youth and promote fatherhood in the communities it serves worldwide.
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!
