Help Fight Premature Births

Premature birth is the leading cause of newborn death in the first month of life, affecting 1,305 babies a day in the United States. Premature births are on the rise -- up 27% since 1981. Many who survive have lifelong health problems.

When you participate in WalkAmerica, you're helping the March of Dimes fight a national crisis. Today, 1 in 8 babies is born prematurely. Many die; others face lifelong disability. The money you raise in WalkAmerica supports March of Dimes research and programs to find answers to what causes premature birth and what can be done to prevent it. Until we have more answers, anyone's baby could be next.

Go to the March of Dimes site and register to raise money to fight premature babies, or take action to sponsor our friend, CJ Marley through You don't pay CJ, you pay directly to the March of Dimes.

Cj says, "On May 1, I will be joining Walk America to raise funds to help the March of Dimes prevent premature births. I am an avid supporter of the March of Dimes because of their previous research into preventing birth defects. I do not ask for a lot. If I could get each person I contact to sponsor me for only $10, I know that I can make a sizable contribution to the March of Dimes. Please help me in the fight to help our babies!"
