Two Manassas-area business women are raising money to help children.

Vice President of EE Wine Energy Judy Wine, and Vice President of Novant Health’s physician and ambulatory division Heather Huneycutt, are working to raise $38,000 for March of Dimes, contributing to a goal set for the Manassas and Prince William area of $188,500.

March of Dimes works to identify the reasons behind birth defects, premature births, and infant deaths.

“It’s and honor to work with the March of Dimes, and I can’t think of a more important cause than healthy babies,” said Judy Wine, 2014 March for Babies – Prince William County Co-Chair. “We look forward to participating in the March for Babies walk every year. The walk is just one example of how we’re able to work toward our mission by helping to improve the health of our youngest community members – the future of our community,” added Heather Huneycutt, 2014 March for Babies – Prince William County Co-Chair.

March for Babies is the largest annual fundraising event for the March of Dimes. More than 4 million babies are born in the United States each year, and the March of Dimes has helped each and every one through 75 years of research, education, vaccines and breakthroughs.

A total of $175,000 was raised last year in Prince William and Manassas for March of Dimes efforts.
