Why we walk
Each year, more than 5,000 babies in Oregon and southwest Washington are born too soon.
Want to help? Join Team OHSU/Doernbecher.
OHSU has joined thousands of teams across the country that support the March of Dimes' March for Babies. Participation in the March for Babies 3k family walk or 10k walk helps fund programs and research to prevent premature birth, birth defects and other serious problems.
In 2013 alone, the March of Dimes donated more than $270,000 to OHSU in research grant funding. They also help us maintain services like the March of Dimes NICU Family Support Program in the Doernbecher Neonatal Care Center. Now in its 10th year, the program provides emotional support, education and activities to families with a child in the NICU.
