March of Dimes
March of Dimes leads the fight for the health of all moms and babies. We believe that every baby deserves the best possible start. Unfortunately, not all babies get one. We are changing that.
How Business Creates Value:
For 80 years, March of Dimes has helped millions of babies survive and thrive. Now we’re building on that legacy to level the playing field for all moms and babies, no matter their age, socio-economic background or demographics. We support moms throughout their pregnancy, even when everything doesn’t go according to plan. We advocate for policies that prioritize their health. We support radical improvements to the care they receive. And we pioneer research to find solutions to the biggest health threats to moms and babies.
How Member Creates Value:
With 1 in 10 babies born too soon, premature birth ranks as the #1 cause of death in children under 5. Ricki's is the mother of a premature child and a passionate advocate for uniting the community to make a difference in the lives of women, babies and families. Her work surrounds bringing corporations, philanthropists and individuals to March of Dimes in ways that are most meaningful to them, including the community walk event, March for Babies; the exclusive Signature Chefs Auction and the local Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Baby Shower. If you or your company is interested in learning more about ways to get involved, Ricki would love to speak with you.
