Since we can’t be together in person, we want you to send us a photo of your child to be featured in a special SUPERHERO album on our @marchofdimesalbuquerque page and my personal page.

Here is what you need to do:

Even in the best of times, moms and babies rely on our programs, research, advocacy and health information every day.

During this time of urgency given the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for March for Babies to Step Up! its support is even more critical.Babies can’t wait. Moms can’t wait. You can’t pause pregnancy. Moms and babies carry significant health risks, and the COVID-19 pandemic is putting more stress on a healthcare system that will be challenged to meet their needs.

So many of our supporters are at home with their families, imagining themselves in the position of that laboring mother, or new mom concerned for her baby in the NICU, and they want to do something right now to help. That is why March for Babies will proceed, but in a new way.

The health and safety of each and every one of you is of the greatest importance to us. As a valued member of the March of Dimes community, you know that March for Babies, at its core, is a months-long effort to rally the community around a cause for healthier moms and babies. At March of Dimes, we rely heavily on the engagement and fundraising activities in the months leading up to the one-day event to support our important research, advocacy and programmatic initiatives dedicated to moms and babies.

As COVID-19 adds to the U.S.'s current urgent maternal and infant health crisis, that means moms and babies need your help now more than ever. Following the continuing advice of the CDC, we can’t come together in person this spring, but we CAN continue to support moms, babies, and families through March for Babies. We’ll have more information about our new VIRTUAL event soon. In the meantime, if you haven’t yet registered for March for Babies, please do, and keep being the creative, passionate and dedicated fundraisers that you are! Visit marchforbabies.org for tools, updates and more. Thank you for all you do.

P.S. Looking for more steps you can take to protect your health and the health of your loved ones during the COVID-19 emergency? Visit marchofdimes.org/coronavirus.

Our Story

March of Dimes leads the fight for the health of all moms and babies. We believe that every baby deserves the best possible start. Unfortunately, not all babies get one. We are changing that. From advocacy to education to research, we’re working to level the playing field so that all moms and babies are healthy. Because when a society supports every family, the future is brighter for all. And when communities work together, even the toughest problems can be solved.
