2 Mar

Natalie Morales, Jon Spector and others ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange.

Natalie Morales, co-host of NBC’s Today Show, was joined on March 1 by March of Dimes volunteers to kick off March for Babies, the March of Dimes largest fundraising event, by ringing The Closing Bell® of the New York Stock Exchange.

“I’m the proud mother of two healthy children, but I understand that not everyone is as fortunate,” said Ms. Morales. “The March of Dimes helps fund research and supports programs that prevent preterm birth, infant mortality and birth defects. Without March for Babies, the March of Dimes couldn’t help families like the Flemings, this year’s National Ambassador family, have full-term healthy pregnancies.”

Natalie Morales was joined by Jon Spector, president and CEO of The Conference Board and a member of the March of Dimes Board of Trustees, to ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange.

“Fundraising is important business, not only for charitable organizations, but also for the corporations that sponsor them,” said Mr. Spector. “March of Dimes presence at the world’s financial capital is an example of the economic importance of nonprofits. As a father of four, businessman and volunteer, I urge our corporate community to support the March of Dimes mission to help moms have full-term, healthy babies. Fit and strong newborns drive our success in the future.”
