Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick.
To help them get the best possible start on life, Alfresco is excited to announce that, through its Alfresco Shares global community service efforts, it has partnered with March of Dimes for the upcoming March for Babies event this April.
The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
Two Alfresco teams – one in Atlanta and one in San Mateo – will raise money and organize participation for the event, which helps fund research to find treatments and prevention and supports community programs aimed at giving moms a better chance for a healthy, full-term pregnancy.
Funds raised will also used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care.
This year, over 7 million people in 900 communities across the nation will join forces to raise awareness and funds for these critical issues. Since 1970, these walks have raised an incredible $2 billion to benefit babies everywhere.
Here at Alfresco, we are encouraging our worldwide network of partners, customers and community to join us in this initiative and support the Alfresco team and the March of Dimes.
If you can’t walk with us this year, please help by donating to one of our teams.
Let’s continue to foster and grow the Alfresco Shares culture and give back to our community in a big way! Thank you for helping us give all babies a healthy start!
