Join Us at March for Babies

Thursday, Apr 09, 2015

Calling all Doylestown Health Families! Was Your Baby Born at Doylestown Hospital? Join us for a special VIA Maternity Center Family Reunion at the March for Babies 2015 – Bucks County.

Did you know that the United States has the highest rate of premature births of any developed country?

Doylestown Health is proud to sponsor the March of Dimes March for Babies 2015 Bucks County to raise awareness and funds to prevent preterm birth and birth defects. March with us to support premature and sick infants and their families. The event takes place on Sunday, April 26 at Bucks County Community College’s Newtown Campus.

Why Walk?

Premature birth is the leading cause of newborn death. One in nine babies in Pennsylvania is born premature. The March for Babies is the largest annual fundraising event for the March of Dimes, and supports their efforts to help all mothers have healthy babies.

When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to nearly half a million babies born too soon each year. The March of Dimes has sponsored walks since 1970, raising an incredible $2.3 billion to benefit all babies.

Join the Fun

This year, three million people will join their families, friends and colleagues in nearly 700 communities across the nation in the March for Babies.
