High Point University March of Dimes EventHIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 14, 2012 – 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 “March for Babies Walk.” The event, which had more than 400 HPU family members participating, raised approximately $35,000.

High Point University March of Dimes EventDr. Donald Scarborough, vice president for community relations, and Gail Tuttle, vice president for student life, served as chairpersons from HPU. Tuttle also serves on the board for March of Dimes.

“Education is more than books and exams,” says Scarborough. “We 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.”

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.
