Thousands of families and local business leaders will join together for the premier community event March for Babies on Saturday, April 27, 2019, at its new location at Marlins Park. March for Babies is a day for everyone. At March for Babies, our community bands together to fight for the health of all moms and babies. Participants enjoy the opportunity to hope for the day when all moms and babies are healthy, remember those babies we lost and honor them with special tributes throughout the day, and celebrate with a three mile walk and fun activities for the whole family.
Brandon Haushalter, 2019 March for Babies Miami Chair, knows how important it is to fight for the health of all moms and babies.“As a father, I can’t think of a more important cause,” he says. “When you March for Babies, you make a statement that you want to live in a world in which healthy moms and strong babies are a priority for us all.”
March of Dimes gives the 4 million babies born each year the best possible start. Nearly half a million of them are born prematurely or with birth defects. Premature birth and its complications are the largest contributors to infant death in the U.S.,and pregnancy-related death has more than doubled over the past 25 years.
Brandon Haushalter is asking local businesses and community leaders to join him in support of March for Babies.“The number of babies born prematurely here in Florida and across the country is not acceptable,” he says. “March of Dimes empowers families with programs, knowledge and tools to have healthy babies and families.”
Every March for Babies participant can make a huge difference for families. Anyone interested in joining the Miami walk can register at marchforbabies.org/event/miami. All participants will enjoy a fun day that includes our Superhero Sprint, face painting, bounce houses, food and entertainment on stage.
