At the end of April I had the opportunity to visit the largest student-run college fundraiser for the March of Dimes, March to the Brazos put on by the Corps of Cadets members at Texas A&M! I was inspired and amazed by these students at their year-end culmination of fundraising, full of physical challenges in the form of push-ups, sit-ups and intense physical feats, in addition to 18 miles of walking, and so appreciative of their efforts to help babies.

In the past 35 years, these students have raised an incredible $2.1 million, and are on track for another year of $100,000+ in 2011! With the command of student leaders Kyle and Andrew, the platoons of the Corps of Cadets compete all year to see which unit wll raise the most money in support of the March of Dimes. Best wishes to Kyle as a new graduate of Texas A & M, and Andrew we look forward to seeing you as a March of Dimes student leader for the Corps again in 2011-2012! 

Championed with the support of March of Dimes board member and former Corps of Cadets member Mark, March to the Brazos marks a special time for the Corps of Cadets, ending not only an incredible year of fundraising but a year in the Corps, allowing for the fun & games to come out in full force on this special day.

Along with the exciting phsyical challenges, the National Ambassador Family spoke to the students, along with March of Dimes volunteer leaders including Mark and the Chair of the local March of Dimes Board. You can see the program and witness the event in this video from the Corps of Cadets:
