Georgia March of Dimes
Premature birth is the #1 cause of newborn death. It has reached epidemic proportions in the U.S., endangering the lives of more than half a million babies. And it's growing at an alarming rate. That's why Six Flags Over Georgia supports March Of Dimes every July with special events and fundraising programs to aid in the efforts to improve the health of babies.
