Why we walk
When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to nearly half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies. We’ve been walking since 1970 and have raised an incredible $2.3 billion to benefit all babies.
Anyone is welcome to contribute to the 2015 March of Dimes Walk through the funeral home we are a proud sponsor.
What to expect
This year, 3 million people will join their family, friends and colleagues in nearly 700 communities across the nation. Our volunteers and staff will encourage and support you in your efforts to raise awareness and funds. No matter if this is your first year or your 25th, you can expect the event to be fun, compelling and rewarding.

The Iowa City Hospice Walk for Dignity is a community event that gives families and friends a meaningful way to honor, remember and celebrate loved ones. It has also become a significant source of funding for Iowa City Hospice’s compassionate work. We are proud to say that 100% of the money raised through sponsorships and from walk participants provides critical support for our mission—to provide quality, end of life care, regardless of an individual’s ability to pay.
We encourage not only individuals to get involved, but for groups to also form teams. Whether you are fund-raising individually or getting group members involved as a team, we appreciate your support. Most if not all of people who attend have been impacted in some way by hospice care, whether in Iowa City Hospice’s seven-county service area, or in another community.
Please get involved and honor someone special.
Anyone is welcome to contribute to the 2015 Walk for Dignity through the funeral home. Gay & Ciha Funeral and Cremation Service is a proud sponsor.
