The March of Dimes Mission:

The mission of the March of Dimes is to reduce birth defects, prematurity and infant mortality. After the March of Dimes conquered polio, the foundation turned its focus to preventing birth defects and infant mortality. The March of Dimes has led the way to discover the genetic causes of birth defects, to promote newborn screenings 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. The March of Dimes educates, advocates, researches, and supports providers, families, moms and babies nationwide.

Athletes Serving Athletes (ASA) 
began with a group of motivated, volunteer athletes who wanted to use their abilities to support individuals living with disabilities in Baltimore City. In 2007, they partnered with the William S. Baer School, to share the thrill of athletic competition with Baer Student Athletes living with disabilities. ASA's  success can be defined by how many people have been encouraged to cross the finish line since 2007. With strong leadership and dedicated WingMen, donors and volunteers, sponsors and partners, ASA continues to empower Athletes living with disabilities to train and compete in over 60 running and triathlon events per year. ASA's reach has extended from Baltimore City to the mid-Atlantic region, offering mentoring, training, and competitive opportunities. All programs are offered at no cost to the Athletes, families, or organizations that support them.
