READ Two years later, family’s appreciation for March of Dimes remains This year’s March for Babies event will be virtual. “We’re going to have other sponsors and giveaways. Things going on. So, it’s going to be a really fun deal. Plus at 9 a.m. on May 15, we are going to get out and start walking to raise money and awareness for the March of Dimes.”
Kenna’s mission to help the March of Dimes started with his mom. “Folks are still having children. One and 10 births are premature in this country and so it is critical that we supply support to them, advocate for them, educate for them and do anything that we can to do research that will prevent this condition in the future,” Kenna said.
“With my mother being a NICU nurse and showing me around the neo-natal care unit and showing me many of those babies don’t survive right,” he shared. The March of Dimes has supported moms and babies for decades and the pandemic has only increased that need. Bill has been volunteering for the March of Dimes for more than 15 years.
