March of Dimes: Walking for Our Babies
Jack & Jill of America, Inc. and the March of Dimes organization have shared a long and cherished partnership. Almost since the inception of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. our members have found ways to assist the March of Dimes and its worthy causes. Most recently, the Minneapolis Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. participated in the “March for Babies” campaign sponsored by the March of Dimes.
Every year in the United States, nearly half a million babies are born too soon, 7,000 of them right here in Minnesota. The March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies and support families if something does go wrong. On April 29, 2016, over 35 Minneapolis Chapter of Jack and Jill, mothers, spouses, and children participated in the March of Dimes Walk for Babies at the Mall of America. We raised ($1,989.37) for March of Dimes and have been asked to (and will be) participating in the upcoming March for Babies video for the 2017 Event. During the 2016-2017 calendar year the chapter will continue their work with the March of Dimes Organization. Our chapter will host another Chapter wide event to support the March for Babies campaign in May 2017.
