Mission Statement

Monies raised through March for Babies will enable the March of Dimes to continue funding programs for the prevention of birth defects, prematurity and infant mortality. The March of Dimes also provides education, community services and advocacy for babies and families. Over the next few years, the March of Dimes will be focusing its primary efforts in reducing the rate of premature births. One out of eight babies is born prematurely in the United States each year - one out of seven in Texas. Prematurity is the leading cause of newborn death. Survivors can suffer lifelong consequences, such as mental challenges and blindness. March of Dimes is committed to finding answers to prematurity and proceeds from March for Babies help support this important research.
