Every year, more than half a million babies are born prematurely, and more than 120,000 babies are born with serious birth defects. With the support of millions of people and thousands of companies, March of Dimes has been able to reduce the rate of premature birth. However, there are still too many babies born too soon or sick.
Early research led to the Salk and Sabin polio vaccines that all babies still receive. Other breakthroughs include new treatments for premature infants and children with birth defects. About 4 million babies are born each year in the United States, and all have benefited from March of Dimes lifesaving research and education.
Kara Cox and Preston Young serve as co-chairs for this event, and Craig and Beau McIntosh, along with their children, Adelaide (6), Fletcher (4), and Finn (2) are the 2014 Ambassador family.
