Preston Automotive Group is excited to be hosting the 2017 Mid-Shore 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.
This year’s Mid-Shore March for Babies will have 3 sections to the walk; Celebrate, Hope and Remember. As we walk the Celebrate Mile, we will celebrate all the babies born prematurely who graduated out of the NICU. We will also celebrate the strength of their families. The Hope Mile we will bring hope to all the moms and babies by providing lifesaving research, programs, and breakthroughs. And the final mile is the Remember Mile where we will remember all the little ones that lost their fight. We will remember them as we walk through the Memory Garden.
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 the word about premature babies, plus their Folic Acid Campaign led to a dramatic reduction in brain and spine birth defects.
