The March of Dimes is thrilled to announce our 2014 National Ambassador, Aidan Lamothe! Born 12 weeks early, Aidan weighed just 3 lbs. and spent 7 weeks in a newborn intensive care unit (NICU). Even as a very young child, he understood how serious it is to be born prematurely and decided he wanted to volunteer to tell his story to help other kids.

He and his family visit the NICU every year on his birthday, to honor the doctors and nurses who saved his life. Aidan, and so many other premature babies, wouldn’t have survived without specialized treatment in the NICU, developed in part by research funded by the March of Dimes.

Today, Aidan is an adventurous 6-year-old who loves playing baseball, playing the piano, and doing gymnastics. He’s proud to serve as the 2014 National Ambassador and will travel the country with his parents to help raise funds and awareness of premature birth.

United is the Official Airline Sponsor of the Ambassador family – flying them across the nation to represent the March of Dimes and promote our mission.

You’ve done so much for March for Babies, but we’re still short of our goal. The good news is that the money you’ve raised so far is already supporting moms and babies in your community.

The numbers might be down…so think “UP!”

For every additional $100 you raise on marchforbabies.org via credit card or PayPal* between May 1 and May 8, you’ll be entered to win two round-trip tickets on United Airlines.

It’s actually quite doable. Maybe send a few more emails; ask 10 people for just $10; donate a little more to your own campaign; suggest making a donation to March for Babies to honor a special mom for Mother’s Day.

We can still get there…and you could be packing your bags. Good luck!

• Challenge is limited to online funds raised between midnight ET on Wednesday, May 1, 2013, and midnight ET Wednesday, May 8, 2013. Funds raised before or after these dates and times will not count toward entry.
• Only donations made to individual walkers are eligible: donations made to a March for Babies team and not to a specific walker will not count toward entry.
• The travel certificates are valid for travel from anywhere in the 48 contiguous United States/ Alaska/Canada/Caribbean/Mexico to anywhere in the 48 contiguous United States/Alaska/ Canada/Caribbean/Mexico.
