March for Babies

We are almost there; our March for Babies is next Saturday, May 3rd.

We currently have raised more money than any other family team!

Facts from The March of Dimes:

Every 8 seconds a baby is born

About every 2 minutes a low birth weight (less than 5.5 lbs) baby is born

About every 4.5 minutes a baby is born with a birth defect

Every hour about 3 babies die

In an average week in Maryland 191 babies are born preterm…

What can you do in the next week to help?

In 8 seconds you can visit

In 2 minutes you can call a friend or neighbor and ask them to join our team

In 4.5 minutes you can send an e-mail encouraging someone to join us on May 3rd or sponsor our team on-line

In 1 hour you can help the March of Dimes raise awareness about this epidemic and help Maryland’s next generation be born healthy

Thank you to everyone who has supported us with this fundraiser honoring Caroline, and all babies!!!
