Gamecocks for Babies is a student organization that works alongside the March of Dimes to help tackle the issue of prematurity by raising awareness at the University of South Carolina!
However, our goal is to not only help raise awareness for prematurity on campus but also to raise money that goes directly to the March of Dimes to fund research about birth defects and prematurity and funds NICU family programs. On the national prematurity report card, the state of South Carolina was given the grade of a 'D' with a preterm birth rate of 11.3%. Richland County alone received an 'F' with 12.4%. These numbers are heartbreaking and we want to make the future brighter for all babies. This is why we choose to support the March of Dimes and we hope you can help us too!
By donating to Gamecocks for Babies, you can also help the March of Dimes give every mom and baby the chance they deserve!
