World Prematurity Day: November 17

Foundation Board Member Jennifer Avenel wears purple to raise awareness for prematurity and March of Dimes.

Premature birth is the #1 killer of babies. Join Tri Sigmas and March of Dimes advocates everywhere by raising awareness during the month of November, Prematurity Awareness Month. Every baby deserves a fighting chance.



Wear purple on November 17 for Wold Prematurity Day and share your selfie with #worldprematurityday and #trisigma. You can also change your profile picture on Facebook to the branded World Prematurity Day frame.


Shout out instantly to your social community with a message on Thunderclap.


The sound of a healthy, happy baby is the sound of a healthy, happy tomorrow. The March of Dimes Lullacry is inspired by the 11,000 babies born each day and all their mothers whom we so proudly support. Watch the video.
