    2013 is the 10th anniversary of the launch of the March of Dimes Prematurity Campaign and the 75th anniversary of the March of Dimes.  From polio to prematurity, the March of Dimes has made a commitment protect the health of moms and babies from the most serious perinatal health problem in our nation.
