Baton Rouge Turkey Trot

Thu November 26, 2020 Baton Rouge, LA 70801 US Directions

Since 2003, The March Of Dimes fight to save babies has been strongly characterized by their Prematurity Campaign. The rising incidence of premature birth has demanded action, and The March of Dimes has responded by initiating an intensive, multi-year campaign to raise awareness and find the causes of prematurity.

The March of Dimes has led the way to discover the genetic causes of birth defects, to promote newborn screening, and to educate medical professionals and the public about best practices for healthy pregnancy. The March of Dimes has supported research for surfactant therapy to treat respiratory distress and helped initiate the system of regional neonatal intensive care for premature and sick babies. Their recent Folic Acid Campaign achieved a dramatic reduction in the incidence of neural tube defects, birth defects of the brain and spine.

We are proud to have The March of Dimes as our official charity partner of the Baton Rouge Turkey Trot.  If you would like to include a donation in your registration or make a separate donation you can do so through this site.
