					      The Virginia Chapter of the March of Dimes
          Announces March for Babies 2009
                     RESULTS
       The March for Babies is the March of Dimes’ largest fund-raising event.
Last year more than half a million people walked in some 1,400 communities.
       March for Babies supports March of Dimes’ programs to help babies be
born healthy. More babies in this country die because of birth defects, low
birth weight, and prematurity than any other cause. Through its nationwide
Campaign for Healthier Babies, the March of Dimes raises funds to support
research, education and health services to overcome these critical problems.
       Over the years, the March of Dimes has ensured many successes --
conquering the ravages of polio, developing the PKU newborn screening tests,
creating the life-saving surfactant therapy to help premature babies breathe,
and building neonatal intensive care units.
