March for Babies a Success With Help From Equal Health
Date:4/21/2008

FORT WORTH, Texas, April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- A company known for standing up for families in need of healthcare helped take a step toward saving the lives of premature babies over the weekend. Arlington-based Equal Health joined other corporate sponsors in the Tarrant County effort to support the 2008 March of Dimes' annual March for Babies on April 19th.

The March for Babies is a nationwide campaign that raises awareness and raises money for care of the half a million babies born prematurely every year. Last year this event raised $730,000 in Tarrant County and over $106 million nationwide.

This year Equal Health employees not only raised and donated money, but close to 30 of them joined in the march or handed out water along the route. Supporters from Equal Health along with thousands of others took part in the 3.5 mile Tarrant County trek from Fort Worth's Farrington Field to Trinity Park. At about the three-mile marker the half-dozen Equal Health employees not marching in the event re-hydrated the walkers at a water station, sponsored by the company, before they headed for the homestretch.

This is the third year Equal Health has taken part in the March for Babies and company president Chris Novinger says, "The weather was sunny and in the 80s, but even if it were raining I think everyone still would have showed up. This is something our employees look forward to every year and plan on being a big part of for years to come." Equal Health CEO Brady Speers adds, "Almost every single one of our employees volunteered their time on a Saturday to help out. It's great to see so many who are giving back to the community and we are proud to be a part of that."
