Join us on November 17, World Prematurity Day, and draw attention to the problem and the millions of babies and families it touches. Like us on Facebook to learn more about how you can help get the word out.
Since our beginning, volunteers have led the March of Dimes to more than 70 years of success. Our volunteer leaders bring experience and passion to helping moms and babies in their communities and across the nation. And our ambassadors help create awareness about our mission.
We work with everyone from schoolchildren to scientists and celebrities to citizens to make a difference for babies. Whether volunteering, joining an event or making a donation, you can help us prevent premature birth and birth defects, and improve the health of moms and babies.
Team youth provides leadership opportunities for students and advisors of all ages. The students get involved by creating awareness, raising money and to speaking out for moms and babies. They're also provided with opportunities to learn and to teach each other about healthy lifestyle choices.
Through the years, local and national organizations have worked hard to make sure that babies have the best start in life. From community educational programs to fundraising events, these partnerships continue to create awareness, raise funds, and get us closer to answers.
