Support the March for Babies May 3 at Canal Place

At the March of Dimes, we promise to work tirelessly toward the day when all babies are born healthy.

The March of Dimes has worked for more than 75 years to help babies get a healthy start in life.

About 4 million babies were born in the Unit- ed States last year, and the March of Dimes helped each and every one through research, education, vaccines, and breakthroughs. Although you may not realize it, you have been touched by the March of Dimes if …

You or your child received a polio  vaccine; You took the B vitamin folic acid before and during pregnancy to prevent birth defects; You or someone you know gave birth to one of the 8,900  babies  in  Maryland  born  too  soon  this

year;

You had a healthy baby due in part to good prenatal care at home and from your doctor or nurse.

The March of Dimes provides support and resources to families in the NICU wondering when or if they’ll be able to take their baby home. We also work to prevent prematurity, birth defects and infant mortality through research and community-based programs.

March for Babies is the easiest way to support our mission. Join the hundreds of walkers who walk in Cumberland each year to raise much-needed funds.

This year’s event will take place on Saturday, May 3 at Canal Place. We welcome families, friends and individuals to attend the event. Babies  are  especially  welcome!

Let’s walk together for stronger, healthier babies. Sign up at marchforbabies.org.

  • Remember, we’re not immune to extinction

    I’d like to pose a theoretical scenario to Cal Thomas.

    If a medical specialist said, “Cal, you’ve got a serious physical problem. Do nothing and you’ll die soon. Follow my prescription, which involves certain life-style changes, and there’s a good probability you’ll live, even if your life may be a bit more constrained than now.”
