March of Dimes Awards Party Reveals Amazing Fundraising Efforts

I was asked to emcee the March of Dimes Central Jersey Awards Party last night. The party serves to recognize the top fundraisers and walkers for the MOD March for Babies that take place throughout our area.

I was floored by not only how much they raised, but at the types of people who support the cause.

It was people from all walks of life. Men, women, college athletes, high school kids, retirees, small children. All of these people come together to raise money in the hopes that all babies will be born full-term and healthy.

It’s just incredible to see so many different types of people come together for a cause.

The Central Jersey division raised $1.5 million with their March for Babies events.

It will go towards research, community grants for hospital and medical centers in our area, and advocacy programs.

I was really honored to be a part of the ceremony, and I’m really amazed by the efforts of the March of Dimes — especially the youngest walkers and volunteers.

The next March for Babies takes place in April 2013, but there are events all year long. If you’d like to get involved with the local chapter of March of Dimes, you can visit their website HERE for more information.

The March of Dimes was originally founded by Franklin D. Roosevelt to fight polio. Their mission has now changed to focus on preventing premature births and birth defects.
