HIGH 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.
“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.
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/.
