Supports March of Dimes to help prevent preterm births, birth defects and deaths

DANVILLE, Pa. – Lace up your walking shoes and join the fight for the health of local parents and babies. Geisinger is hosting the March of Dimes’ March for Babies at 1 p.m. June 25 at Montour Preserve, 374 Preserve Road, Danville.

The event will include a superhero sprint for children, a photo booth, Mamacita’s food truck, face painting, games and more. 

Funds raised help families such as the Crocettos. The family spent 115 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit when their twin daughters, Nova and Nadia, were born prematurely. Today the twins are energetic and thriving.

Geisinger has partnered with the March of Dimes since 2006. The organization plays critical roles in raising awareness and funds to help prevent preterm birth, birth defects and deaths.
Funds raised through March for Babies also support the March of Dimes NICU Family Support Program, which helps families cope with a NICU stay and prepares to take their baby home.

Register or donate at marchforbabies.org/event/susquehanna and join the celebration on June 25. Pets are not permitted at this event.
