National Ambassador Program

The March of Dimes National Ambassador Program is an annual campaign that puts a face on the March of Dimes mission…the face of a child who was saved by March of Dimes research, programs, or educational campaigns designed to improve infant health.  As a living symbol of the March of Dimes mission to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects and infant mortality, the National Ambassador plays a vital role in the Foundation’s efforts to save babies.

Throughout the year, the National Ambassador Family travels across the country to hundreds of meetings, special events, conferences, and fundraising activities sharing their compelling story with millions of Americans.  During these visits, the National Ambassador participates in media interviews and photo sessions and makes appearances with celebrities, government and public officials, and senior-level corporate management to increase public and media awareness of the March of Dimes mission.   Perhaps the most special of these events is the annual visit to the White House, where the National Ambassador meets the President of the United States.

The National Ambassador is one of the Foundation’s most recognized and beloved volunteers.

    This is truly a remarkable program. Little Emily was born three months early, and today is thriving at 17 months old. I know many people made her life possible, including the March of Dimes. It brings tears to my eyes to realize that someone that didn’t even personally know my family at all could care enough about a life. It truly is a blessing to have March of Dimes. There’s quite an interesting story that happened long before we even had Emily. I was working for a company and we did a March for Dimes (Babies) drive and all of the cashiers raised money. I got a bag and some other March of Dimes merchandise for earning the most money in the store. I never would have thought at that time that I would need assistance from such a remarkable organization. Thank you March of Dimes!!!

    I am a former Stroller Strides francisee and have a similar story to the previous reply. My former business volunteered at the Visalia March for Babies in 2009. Little did I know that my precious baby, Mia would arrive 13 weeks early (just weeks after we volunteered at the Visalia March for Babies). At only 2 pounds 2 ounces, she spent 3 1/2 months at Mattel Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles. I am happy to say that she is a thriving and feisty 20 month old today. Thank you March of Dimes for all you do for babies like Mia.
