March of Dimes, the leading non-profit organization for maternal and infant health, celebrates its 75th anniversary this year and its ongoing work to help all babies get a healthy start in life. About 4 million babies are born in the United States each year, and the March of Dimes has helped each and every one through research, education, vaccines, and breakthroughs.
The Little Falls community will come together Thursday to help find the next breakthrough, finding an effective way to prevent premature birth and birth defects. Pizza Ranch on LeMieur Street will host the March of Dimes Jail and Bail, from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Participants are thrown in a mock jail and raise bail in the form of donations to the March of Dimes. Since its inception in 1957, more than 5 million citizens have volunteered their time in the name of fun – and a good cause at the March of Dimes Jail and Bail.
