Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Supports March for Babies
Denver, Colorado, March 1, 2016

Zeta Zeta Zeta Chapter, Amicae and Youth Auxiliaries of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority are once again supporting March for Babies by raising funds and awareness to prevent preterm birth and give more babies a healthy start in life.

Zeta members in more than 850 communities across America will participate in their local March for Babies walks. Throughout the year, members host fundraising events, register for Zeta Teams and serve as event volunteers.

Addressing preterm birth disparities, Zeta members and auxiliaries are at the forefront of raising awareness. Specifically, prematurity affects one out of nine babies born in the U.S. today - a rate that has increased 29 percent since 1981. The numbers are even more alarming for African-American babies who have a one-in-six chance of being born too soon.

In 2015, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority and auxiliaries raised more than $441,500 for March for Babies. This year, Zeta Phi Beta announced its Campaign 2016: “Fighting for Babies” to raise more than $460,000 to support the March of Dimes mission. “Alongside the March of Dimes, we are fighting for all babies,” states Zeta Phi Beta Sorority International President Mary Breaux Wright. “Efforts to end prematurity are underscored by the fundraising activities, awareness programming and endless enthusiasm of our sisterhood. One again, I am excited that we are kicking off what we hope to be another record-setting fundraising year!”

The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide and its premier event, March for Babies, the March of Dimes (MOD), founded in 1938, works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Additionally, the March of Dimes, a national voluntary health agency whose mission is to improve the health of babies, funds programs of research, community services, education, and advocacy to save babies. For the latest resources and information, visit marchofdimes.com or its Spanish language website nacersano.org. Find MOD on Facebook and follow MOD on Twitter.

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was founded in 1920 on the belief that the social nature of sorority life should not overshadow the real mission for progressive organizations to address societal mores, ills, prejudices, poverty, and health concerns of the day. The international organization’s 125,000+ initiated members, operating in more than 850 chapters, have given millions of voluntary hours to educate the public, provide scholarships, support organized charities, and promote legislation for social and civic change.
