Every newborn baby should enter this world healthy. The March of Dimes is dedicated to doing their best to make sure that happens. That's why Runnymede Capital Management proudly served as a corporate sponsor of March of Dimes' March for Babies.Runnymede's Director of Research Chris Wang was honored to serve as the Chair for the Morris County walk held at Fairleigh Dickenson in Madison, NJ on April 30th and he looks forward to serving again in 2018. The Runnymede team walked with hundreds of other families in the community event which aimed to raise over $190,000.
March for Babies participants walk together for stronger, healthier babies in nearly 900 communities nationwide. It is the nation's oldest and largest charitable walking event. Since 1970, March of Babies has raised over $2 billion for life-saving reserach to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, infant mortality, and premature birth. The March of Dimes was founded by our 32nd President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, in the fight against polio. After the discovery of the polio vaccine, the March of Dimes focused their efforts to improve the health of babies and has been successful with the help and enthusiasm of many grassroots volunteers.
