The money you raise in March for Babies funds important research and
programs that help babies begin healthy lives. More than 500 local programs were supported to help educate women and
reduce risks during pregnancy. Comfort and information was offered to 90,000 families with a newborn in intensive care
through March of Dimes NICU Family Support®. Your involvement also helped the U.S. premature birth rate to drop for
the 7th year in a row.
