'March of Dimes' is an organization that has been dear to me since high school. This is how you can help ensure a better future for our babies around South Jersey!

For those of you unfamiliar with 'March of Dimes,' they're a statewide organization dedicated to improving the lives of babies born with birth defects, prematurely, and preventing infant mortality.

Through your donations and volunteer work, the organization is able to help our babies through research, education and medical breakthroughs. I became involved with this organization back in high school, and through to college and is something I hold dear to my heart because the welfare of both mother and child are at stake.

How can you help?

There are many ways you can help around South Jersey! For instance in April 2018, Ocean City Boardwalk is holding their March for Babies walk at the Sports & Civics Center:

OR you can stop by October 7th at Advocare Premier OBGYN's Prego Expo at the Mansion on Main Street in Voorhees!
