Contributed by the South Carolina Chapter of the March of Dimes

Vince Ford, senior vice president, Community Health, Palmetto Health, will serve as chair for the 2013 Midlands March for Babies event. Ford is committed to helping reach the event goal of $400,000 to support March of Dimes research and community programs to help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies to begin healthy lives. March for Babies will take place on April 27, 2013. The location will be announced soon.

Ford has been a long time volunteer leader for the March of Dimes, serving on committee and boards, including his current position as chair of the March of Dimes South Carolina Chapter Board of Directors.

“I’m serving as the 2013 Chair for March for Babies because I believe if we can give a child a healthy birth, we are making a positive impact on their future quality of life. I challenge Columbia’s businesses and families to join me in raising critical funds so more families will know the joy of having a healthy baby” explains Mr. Ford. “When you participate in March for Babies, you are helping the March of Dimes continue working for stronger, healthier babies in our community and across our state.”
