Preston Automotive Group is ecstatic to announce our partnership with March of Dimes to hold the 2016 Caroline County March for Babies at our Preston Auto Complex. Back in 2003, the March of Dimes started the Prematurity Campaign in order to fund research, spread awareness, and support legislation that improves the chances that moms will have healthy babies. The campaign was made global in 2008. We are so happy to be part of that cause.
Across the world, 15 million premature babies are born every year, 380,000 of which are born in the United States. This figure has been decreasing over the last several years, and a lot of it has to do with the March of Dimes raising funds and spreading awareness.
Franklin Roosevelt originally created the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis in an effort to establish a polio patient aid program and fund research. Once those goals were accomplished, the foundation was nicknamed the March of Dimes and began working on those aforementioned goals they still strive for to this very day.
The March of Dimes is leading the way to discovering the genetic causes of birth defects. They promote newborn screening and educate medical professionals and the public about the best practices for having a healthy pregnancy.
Throughout the years, March of Dimes has supported surfactant therapy research, in an effort to treat respiratory distress. They also kicked off the system of regional neonatal intensive care for sick and premature babies, plus their Folic Acid Campaign led to a dramatic reduction in brain and spine birth defects.
Preston Automotive Group invites you to join us at the Caroline County March of Dimes walk the first Sunday of May. Families, friends, and all your favorite local companies are coming together for the March of Dimes on May 1st. We are proud to have the Caroline County March of Dimes on the Preston Auto Complex and can’t wait to see you there!
Registration time begins at 12:00 noon and the walk itself begins at 1:00. Preston cares about philanthropy and taking care of the community around us, that’s why we are so excited about this event. We hope to see the entire community there, having a great Sunday and spreading awareness for healthy babies!
