Region 2-B membership has reached outstanding achievement with the March of Dimes
To: Region 2-B, UAW Local Union Presidents, Chairpersons, CAP Chairs and Retired Workers Chairs
It is my pleasure to share the outstanding achievement Region 2-B has reached with the March of Dimes. In the 2016 March for Babies season, Region 2-B membership raised nearly $234,000! Nationally, the UAW raised nearly $800,000 and our Region raised 29% of that total! Thankfully, considerable progress has been made in improving the care of premature infants after birth, but premature birth is still the #1 killer of babies.
Your continued support and commitment will allow the March of Dimes to continue to fight the causes of premature birth by funding lifesaving research and educational programs aimed at preventing premature births, birth defects and infant mortality. I thank you all for the funds you have raised to fight premature birth that have helped to ensure every baby is born healthy.
