MARCH OF DIMES ENCOURAGES PEOPLE TO STEP UP! TO SUPPORT MOMS AND BABIES DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
New, virtual step tracking campaign using Charity Miles mobile app marks March for Babies’ 50th anniversary of marching events.
March of Dimes today launched a new virtual campaign, called Step Up!, to raise vital support for moms and babies during the COVID-19 pandemic causing the ongoing global health crisis. The new virtual fundraiser will replace this year’s March of Dimes’ annual in-person March for Babies events that for the past 50 years have seen thousands of people march as a way to fundraise. Due to social distancing and stay-in-place orders, March of Dimes is encouraging supporters across the country to Step Up! by taking part in a virtual walk – safely at home or wherever they can – in order to support moms and babies during their greatest time of need.
