March for Babies is the walk that saves babies. The March of Dimes biggest fundraiser, March for Babies supports lifesaving research and innovative programs that save babies born prematurely or with birth defects. Since its beginning in 1970, March for Babies has raised over $1 billion to help give babies a fighting chance. Now in its 41st year, March for Babies is expected to draw over a half million walkers nationally. Locally, over 40,000 people representing over 400 companies and organizations will come together in an effort to raise over $3 million!
