March for Babies

On May 17th we provided our 40 foot obstacle for March of Dimes March for Babies.  The mission of the March of Dimes is to help moms have full-term pregnancies and research the problems that threaten the health of babies.  According to the website www.marchofdimes.org the local chapters of the March of Dimes "focus primarily on three broad areas:  educating women and their families on how to have the healthiest possible pregnancy, either now or in the future, and educating health care professionals by providing continuing education on a variety of topics related to preconception health, prenatal care, and supporting families in the newborn intensive care unit; caring for pregnant women by ensuring they have access to quality prenatal care and services that may reduce the risk of poor birth outcomes; and supporting families whose babies are either born prematurely or have other conditions that require them to be admitted to the NICU."
