Margaret & Thomas came into this world too soon and too sick. Maggie was just under 2 lbs and Thomas was exactly 1 lb when he was born. These micopreemies had a long road ahead. They spent their first Thanksgiving and Christmas in the NICU. Maggie was able to come home after 2 & 1/2 months. Thomas spent over 4 months in the NICU before he came home to be with sister. Now they are happy healthy almost 9 year olds. We support March of Dimes because we know without their years of research and findings, our miracle story would have had a very different ending. We hope that we can help all families to have strong healthy babies. Even 1 day in the NICU is 1 day too many.

Two babies die every hour in the U.S., and about every 12 hours a woman dies as a result of complications from pregnancy. It’s not fine. But together we can do something about it.
Our community of individuals, teams, and businesses come together at Run for Babies to raise funds and awareness so all moms and families can experience the joy of a healthy baby. Together we hope for the day when all moms and babies are healthy.
