The Story

EVENT DATE: Nov 08, 2015



March of Dimes is inspired by all babies—those born healthy and those that need our help to survive and thrive. For more than 77 years, we have worked at improving the health of babies by preventing premature birth, birth defects and infant mortality. Our promise is that we will continue to give babies the best chance at a healthy life.


We carry out our mission in Arizona through:


Community programs that help moms to be in Arizona have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies.

Advocacy for programs that help moms in Arizona get care and services to improve their health and the health of their babies.

Research the serious problems that threaten our babies and work on treatments and preventions.

Education through our websites, which have the latest pregnancy health information in English and Spanish.

Support through our online community and hospitals in Arizona, we offer information and comfort to families with a newborn in intensive care.
