Looking for a cool way to raise money for March for Babies? Check out what Long Island is doing with schools and districts – challenging them to raise a mile of dimes this spring!


One mile has 5,280 feet – and if you raise a mile, you can raise as much as $10,560 for your March for Babies team! Class challenges, grade challenges, and asking local businesses to sponsor a few feet are just a few of the ways the students will be participating.


Students are encouraged to sell a quarter mile of dimes, $2,640, and become an official member of the Quarter Mile Club. They will seek out their teachers, friends, parents, relatives, coaches and others to buy feet of dimes, yards of dimes, and maybe even a whole quarter mile to join the club.


Every time a sale is made, a student has the opportunity to educate the public about healthy babies and prematurity and its effect upon the community. Check out some of our resources for Mile of Dimes on the Team Youth site!
