March for Babies 2015

May 9, 2015

Fenway Park, Boston

The Loving Nest was proud to participate in this year’s March for Babies in Boston. This year the event took place at Fenway Park and our team consisted only of our small little family. But next year, we hope to engage more people to join us and help this wonderful cause.

March for Babies is a wonderful cause that raises money to help give each baby a healthy beginning. The money raised not only is used in research, but also supports local programs that educate women and reduce risks during pregnancy, as well as provides comfort and information to 90,000 families with a newborn in intensive care through March of Dimes NICU Family Support®. Our involvement has also helped the U.S. premature birth rate to drop for the 7th year in a row. When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to nearly half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies.
