The March of Dimes funds research to find the causes and ways to prevent premature birth—an infant health crisis that affects more than 6,000 babies in South Carolina each year. In half of all cases there is no known cause. Premature babies struggle to survive and may face life-long health consequences.

The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. For more than 75 years, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
