Together we celebrate every story as we walk in the footsteps of NICU graduates and their families. Meet at the Family Fun Zone and the Superhero Sprint — we supply the purple capes to make every kid feel like a hero.

We bring hope to every mom and baby through lifesaving research, breakthroughs and programs. Mission Moments let you experience some of what babies, parents, doctors and nurses see and feel in hospitals every day.

As we walk, we honor the babies we lost to remember how much they mean to us and support one another. Get inspired when you see their names along Memory Mile and honor them in the Memory Garden.

Walk in Kaya's Shoes

Like so many babies born too soon or with life-threatening complications, Kaya started her life in the NICU. Watch her amazing story of survival, made possible in large part by our work at the March of Dimes and fundraisers like you.

The Faces of March for Babies

So many families are touched by birth defects, premature birth and infant loss. Meet a few of them.

  • Jen

    Mother of Sean, stillborn at 21 weeks
    This year will be my first walking. The past few years I have volunteered at our local event, but I did not have a family team myself. I didn’t feel ready. I feel ready this year. I will proudly be at the walk in honor of my little fighter, Sean, with his brothers and dad by my side.

  • Jami

    Mother of Lexi, Alexia, Keira and Arianna (lost 27 minutes after birth)
    Even though our first daughter was born prematurely in 2001 at just 29 weeks, it wasn’t until after our third daughter, Arianna, was born that we created our March for Babies team. We walk so that our three living daughters won’t ever have to feel the devastation of losing a child. Without the parents who walked before us, we would very likely be the parents of only one living child.

  • Julie

    Mother of 14-year-old Riley
    My reasons for walking and raising money have changed as my daughter Riley has grown older. This year she will celebrate her 14th birthday, and I’m not ‘over’ what happened to her. More times than I can count, I had to walk away from my daughter in the NICU and wonder if she would still be alive when I got back. This walk is a way for us to do something as a family that celebrates that she survived while acknowledging that not everyone is as lucky.
