The March of Dimes Foundation is one of the largest and most active Childrens' Charities around. The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. Over the years I have known many young couples and families affected by situations and conditions which The March of Dimes supports. The Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers from Air Station Savannah are going to compete in a distance swim over 12 miles this summer in order to challenge ourselves and raise money for children and families in need. If you would like to make a donation in support of The March of Dimes on behalf of our swim I encourage you to do so. All donations will go directly to The March of Dimes. Thanks for your support.
