Please join Seattle Parents of Preemies for the upcoming 2017 Greater Puget Sound - March For Babies event! We are honored and excited to walk through the streets of Seattle in support of the March of Dimes and their efforts to eradicate prematurity! Last year, we had an amazing turnout of 18 families (over 40 members) on our team. Let’s make our team even bigger this year! We would love to you have as part of our team!
