SUPPORT THE MISSION

The March of Dimes is leading the fight to tackle the vast problems of preterm birth. Prematurity is one of the most significant health threats to moms and babies today. Prematurity leaves a devastating toll on families and places a heavy financial burden on businesses and society.

-1 in 9 babies in Alabama is born premature
-Prematurity is the #1 killer of babies in the U.S. and the leading cause of death in children under the age of 5 worldwide
-Prematurity is a leading cause of lasting childhood disabilities
-It is estimated that the societal and economic costs of pre-term birth is $26.2 billion annually

If you cannot make it to the event, you can still help by making a 100% tax-deductible contribution to "Fund the Mission" of the March of Dimes.  Gifts can be recognized or given anonymously. We thank you for your generosity and support.
