The March of Dimes and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. have a long standing partnership in the fight to prevent birth defects. The March of Dimes’ largest fundraise is Walk America: The Walk That Saves Babies.
WalkAmerica support lifesaving research and community programs that save innocent babies from birth defects, low birth weight and infant death. Since its beginning in 1970, Walk America has raised more than $2 billion to help save millions of babies from death or disability.
Phi Omicron Zeta has been a strong supporter of Walk America since 2009. The March of Dimes has named November Prematurity Awareness Month to draw attention to this costly and serious public health problem.
