Malama Family Recovery Center (MFRC) participated in Maui's 2013 March of Dimes March for Babies last month by managing the two-mile walk's first checkpoint-refreshment station. Earlier this year, the March of Dimes Hawai'i Chapter awarded a grant to MFRC to support the BabySAFE (Substance Abuse Free Environment) Program, which is aimed at underserved maternal and child health needs in Maui County.
"We are so grateful for the support from March of Dimes for this important program," said Megan Morrow, BabySAFE staff member. "We wanted to help out at the walk because it is participation in events like the March for Babies that make grants like the one we received possible.
