Seventy-five percent of the proceeds raised from the March of Dimes walks funnels directly to research teams. "The money is used in local projects and research grants that our national office awards," Varoga said, "and many of them are given to researchers right here in Houston and Galveston;' Twenty years after Roosevelt created the March of Dimes, a research team led by Dr. Jonas Salk announced that it had developed a "safe, potent and effective" vaccine for polio. Since that day, the March has committed itself to fighting the world's most daunting threat to infants — birth defects. The group has established four goals that it hopes to reach by the year 2000 — reduce birth defects by 10 percent, reduce infant mortality to seven percent for every 1,000 live births, limit low birth weight to no more than five percent of all live births and increase the number of women who get prenatal care in their first trimester to 90 percent. The diligence and dedication that the March of Dimes put in its onslaught of birth defects is felt in communities throughout the country. Recently, the Texas Department of Health reported a 20 percent drop in the infant mortality rate in Harris County. The hope is that in three years, given successful events like this years UH walk, America will have taken a monumental step in ensuring that every newborn is mentally and physically healthy.
