Worldwide, 15 million babies are born too soon each year. More than 1 million die each year, and the 14 million more struggle to survive. The March of Dimes needs your help to honor these babies and give hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year.. Join Kiwanis members throughout the country as they take part in March for Babies, and walk together for stronger, healthier babies!
Sign up at marchforbabies.org/kiwanis to join or start a new team! Here you can find the date and location of your March for Babies and valuable information about getting started. If you register a new team, make sure to include Kiwanis, Key Club, Circle K or Builders Club in your team name! For more information on getting started, check out our School & Youth Team Tips: March for Babies – Getting Started video.
There are tons of fun ways to get involved. Your club can host coin collections, dances, and in-school challenges to raise funds. Remember, you can raise funds year-round to support babies. Host a carwash this Summer and then host an event at homecoming this Fall. No matter the event, your efforts are helping to give every baby a healthy start.
