March Of Dimes Set To Host March For Babies May 17th At Washington Park

On May 17 in Casper hundreds of families and business leaders will join together in the March of Dimes annual March for Babies—the nation’s oldest walk fundraiser honoring babies born healthy and those who need help to survive and thrive.

The Casper walk will be at Washington Park, a new location. The 3-mile walk kicks off at 10 a.m. Participation in March for Babies will provide a memorable and fun day for the whole family including a bounce house and activities for the entire family. To register for the event, visit www.marchforbabies.org.  Sponsors of the Wyoming March for Babies events include Loaf ‘N Jug, Chesapeake Energy, Hilltop National Bank, the McMurry Foundation and Wyoming Medical Center.

When you participate in March for Babies, you help babies like Sterling. Born at 30 weeks, 6 days, Sterling weighed 2 pounds, 14 ounces and was 15 inches long. His lungs were very underdeveloped and he was put on a ventilator and CPAP machine in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Today Sterling is a healthy, happy, cheeky three and a half year old. His parents credit the March of Dimes with helping Sterling survive by funding research and other programs for premature babies/sick babies and ask other families to join them in supporting March for Babies.

Premature birth is the most urgent infant health problem in the U.S. today. It affects more than half a million babies each year, including one out of 10 babies born in Wyoming. The March of Dimes is committed to funding research to find the answers to problems that continue to threaten the lives and the health of babies.   Funds raised by March for Babies in Wyoming help support prenatal wellness programs, research grants, NICU family support programs and advocacy efforts for stronger, healthier babies.

The 2014 March for Babies is sponsored nationally by the March of Dimes number one corporate supporter Kmart, Macy’s, Famous Footwear, Cigna, Sanofi Pasteur, Mission Pharmacal, and United Airlines.

The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health.

With chapters nationwide and its premier event, March for Babies®, March of Dimes has worked over 75 years to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
