Annual March of Dimes Walk Event at HPU Raises $35,000
HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 14, 2012 â€“ Students, faculty and staff at High Point University hold a special place in their hearts for the smallest members of the community by hosting the annual March of Dimes â€śMarch for Babies Walk.â€ť The event, which had more than 400 HPU family members participating, raised approximately $35,000.
â€śEducation is more than books and exams,â€ť says Scarborough. â€śWe are trying to help the entire HPU community to understand how important service to others is to our community and our human concern for others.â€ť
Money raised from the event will be used to assist the March of Dimes, which supports programs in the community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies and funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten babies.
The March of Dimes is still accepting donations in order to reach their goal of $50,000. For more information, or to donate online, visit http://www.marchofdimes.com/northcarolina/.
