The 2017 March of Dimes, March for Babies walk was held last week at Jacksonville University. Walkers laced up their sneakers and came out to trek with thousands of supporters of the March of Dimes. Walkers enjoyed food, fun and music for the whole family.
Nearly 4 million babies are born prematurely annually in the United States. March of Dimes proceeds help fund research to prevent premature births, birth defects and infant mortality. Seventy-six cents of every dollar raised in March for Babies is spent on research and programs to help prevent these issues. The money raised is a lifeline for babies in the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), connecting them with the critical treatments and care they need.
