Lehmann Eye Center joins more than 7 million of Americans in a walk to give hope to the babies born too soon or sick. The team gathered in Pecan Park to walk, run and stroll in the 2013 March of Dimes® March for Babies® in Nacogdoches.
More than 450,000 babies are born too soon each year, and, with a premature birth rate of 12.4%, the state of Texas has a long way to go in reducing our rate of premature birth. Lehmann Eye Center supports the mission of the March of Dimes® to "help moms have full-term pregnancies and research the problems that threaten the health of babies."
An award for "Best Business T-Shirt" was presented to the Lehmann Eye Center team for the bright green shirts worn by the Lehmann Eye Center team.
Lehmann Eye Center is proud to share in the March for Babies® tradition that dates back to 1970. Walks across the country, have raised more than $2.6 billion.
