April 24 is March for Babies Day.
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.
