Click on the website link and be inspired by FBLA’s March of Dimes Mini Walks from the past. (website created by Faith McDonald) Then, plan on joining us in the 2020 Mini walk during half-time of Centura’s September 25th football game. Covid protocol will be followed.
According to the March of Dimes Organization, “premature birth, (birth before 37 weeks of pregnancy) and its complications are the #1 cause of death of babies in the United States. Babies who survive premature birth often have long term health problems. In the United States, about 380,000 babies are born prematurely each year. The preterm birth rate (the percent of babies born before 37 weeks each year) is 9.8 percent in the United States. This means 1 in 10 babies is born too soon. The U.S. preterm birth rate is among the worst of high-resource nations.
Thank you for helping Centura FBLA, help the March of Dimes, help babies.
