Did you know that more than half a million babies are born too soon each year?
ON TALK OF ALABAMA TODAY, TO PROMOTE THIS YEAR'S "MARCH OF DIMES" "MARCH FOR BABIES" EVENT, IS JOE YEAZITZIS AND MARY MICHAEL KELLY.
The money you raise in March for Babies funds important research and programs that help babies begin healthy lives.When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies. We've been walking since 1970 and have raised an incredible $2 billion to benefit all babies.
This year, more than 7 million people will join their family, friends and colleagues in 900 communities across the nation. Our volunteers and staff will encourage and support you in your efforts to raise awareness and funds. No matter if this is your first year or your 25th, you can expect the event to be fun, compelling and rewarding. So go out and help Alabama babies!
