March for Babies Logo

The annual March of Dimes Houston March for Babies is set for April 27.

The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) is seeking dedicated team captains for the 2014 Houston March for Babies – the No. 1 March of Dimes event in the nation. Help us break previous fundraising records by recruiting and motivating UTHealth employees and students to walk and raise money for the Sunday, April 27 event!

If you are interested in serving as a team captain to support UTHealth’s efforts by walking together for stronger, healthier babies, please contact Natasha Helm at Natasha.R.Helm@uth.tmc.edu by Tuesday, Feb. 18. When you walk, you give hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year.

This year, Sean C. Blackwell, MD, chair of the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at UTHealth Medical School and Kevin P. Lally, MD, chair of the Department of Pediatric Surgery at the UTHealth Medical School, will serve as Team UTHealth Co-Chairs. Money raised helps fund research in the Texas Medical Center – including at UTHealth – and supports education programs in our community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies.

Save the date, walkers! Team captains will be looking for walkers to join their teams, share the road and enjoy a morning of camaraderie for a great cause.

We are excited to be walking together again and we hope that you will consider representing UTHealth as a leader for this important cause. Be on the lookout for team captain meetings, kick-off events and Team UTHealth’s March for Babies registration page.
