Did you know that students across the country (elementary through college age) raised more than $3 million in 2013 to support stronger, healthier babies? Schools alone raised more than $2.2 million! Join students throughout the country as they march to help babies! Here are some ways to help you and your team get started this season!

Get Organized: Create your team online at www.marchforbabies.org. On this site you can set fundraising goals, customize your team page and recruit friends and family to help you reach your goal! Team members can register online and join! Already created a team last year? Simply sign into your account and re-register your team!

Promote and Build Your Team: Reach out to your classmates, family members, friends and organizations at school to support your campaign by joining your team or helping to fundraise. With administrative approval present information about March of Dimes in front of your class, a student organization or even your entire school! Look into promoting your team’s efforts in the school newspaper and on the campus radio/news station.

Set Goals: Work together to set a team goal and determine how many fundraisers you need to recruit to meet it. As a group, brainstorm events that will spread awareness and raise funds. Ask everyone to also set an individual fundraising goal.

When you particpate in March for Babies, you give hope to the families of babies born too soon or sick.
