March for Babies 2013 3 MARCH FOR Babies 2013 2HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 4, 2013 – The March of Dimes annual “March for Babies Walk” on HPU’s campus raised $43,000 this year.

That money 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 entire High Point University community has been amazing supporters of the March of Dimes March for Babies walk,” says Velvet Linville-Scales, Division Director for the March of Dimes. “Every year faculty, staff and students not only support this important effort by showing up in large numbers to walk, but they also raise significant funds.”

“HPU students continually answer the call for philanthropic efforts like this,” says Gail Tuttle, vice president for Student Life at HPU. “They want a future with healthy babies and we appreciate their gallant efforts to support the walk and raise funds.”

March for Babies is the March of Dimes’ largest annual fundraiser nationwide, raising over $2 billion since its inception in 1970. In addition to research, funds raised provide comfort to families who have a baby in neonatal intensive care.
