March for Babies has been held annually around America since 1970 and has raised an incredible $1.8 billion to benefit babies. Every year, more than half a million babies in the U.S. are born prematurely, and premature birth is the leading cause of newborn death and many disabilities. The funds raised at the event support programs in the community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies and also go towards research to find answers to the serious problems that threaten babies.
“To all of the volunteers and all of the people who work so timelessly, I know everyone here is grateful to you and hopefully more and more money can be raised so more and more good work can be done,” said Kidman.
