Description

A baby’s first steps are one of the most precious moments in life, and the March of Dimes believes every baby deserves a healthy first step. Take your own first steps by joining March for Babies and make sure more babies get that chance.  Join us in walking together for stronger, healthier babies.
In 2013, the March of Dimes, the leading non-profit organization for maternal and infant health, celebrates its 75th anniversary this year and its ongoing work to help all babies get a healthy start in life.  More than 4 million babies were born in the United States last year, and the March of Dimes has helped each and every one through research, education, vaccines, and breakthroughs. 


This year, March for Babies will be held in In Eisenhower Park in East Meadow on April 28th  at 9am and on May 11th at Bethpage Ballpark in Central Islip. It’s a family-friendly event where the Long Island community comes together to raise money to support research, services, education and advocacy in the fight against prematurity, birth defects and infant mortality.

Interested walkers and donors can visit marchforbabies.org to sign up as an individual or family, start a team, or donate at marchforbabies.org

For more information about March for Babies, contact the March of Dimes at 516-496-2100.
