Rebecca Moynihan, Director of Special Projects at the March of Dimes, as well as a member of Apogee, helped formulate the event in an effort to combine her passion for spinning, and love for babies. Moynihan states, “March for Babies fundraising season is still in high gear, so hosting this fitness fundraiser is another great event for anyone to support healthy babies. We have the most enthusiastic volunteers! For 75 years, millions of volunteers have given dimes and dollars in support of our mission.”
In 2013, the March of Dimes celebrates its 75th anniversary – honoring 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.
