Everyone has their own reason for getting involved with March of Dimes. Our mission affects every mom and every baby. Maybe you or a friend or family member had a premature birth or a child born with a birth defect. Maybe a loved one struggled with preeclampsia or other birth complications. Maybe you or a close friend had a miscarriage or multiple miscarriages. Maybe you had a healthy baby, free of complications and want others to experience the same thing. There are so many reasons why GFWC members participate with March of Dimes, and there are now many ways you can as well.
