Every year, nearly 500,000 babies are born premature or with birth defects in the U.S. In Texas alone, more than 800 babies are born preterm and more than 600 are born with low birthweight…every week!
As a leader in the design of healthcare environments for women and children, FKP | CannonDesign is proud of our partnership with the March of Dimes – an organization that raises money to ensure moms and babies get the best possible care. And on May 6, we invite you to join us as we March for Babies at the University of Houston’s Main Campus. As the largest walk in the country, thousands of Houstonians will descend on the campus to raise money and awareness for lifesaving research, services and education to help babies get a healthy start in life
If you cannot make it to the march, we hope you will consider sponsoring our team with a donation. As the leader of the FKP | CannonDesign team, I can assure you the funds raised will benefit children locally, as several local organizations receive significant grant funding for research in areas such as preterm labor, low birth weight, Down Syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, and other areas in maternal and fetal medicine from this event.
