Owl Blog Post for September 30th, 2022
The AmPark Pumpkin Blaze & March of Dimes, March for Babies Costume Parade is back on Monday, October 31st!
Please join the fight for the health of all moms and babies by supporting your child’s participation in March of Dimes’ WonderWalk fundraising event.
For decades, schools conducted WonderWalk in person with a group mini walk around school grounds, often on Halloween. The past 2 years we included a virtual option to fundraise and remains open to create fundraising options for families. It is a fun way for children to get involved, learn the spirit of volunteerism and helping others.
We invite you to join the child’s school’s WonderWalk team on the March for Babies online school fundraising page at www.marchforbabies.org/team/Ampark
Begin by clicking JOIN and create your child’s online fundraising page under the school’s team, shown above. You and your child can use that page to fundraise. Your family is encouraged to start fundraising as soon as today and you can continue through November 30th.
For over 80 years, dating back to the pioneering of a life-saving vaccine for polio, March of Dimes has always risen to face daunting challenges. By joining WonderWalk you are supporting March of Dimes’ efforts to end preventable maternal death and morbidity, premature birth and increase health equity. You are stepping up during this public health crisis, at a time when it is still urgently needed. Thanks to volunteers like you, March of Dimes can develop new programs and resources to help families during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.
In addition to the school fundraiser event this fall, some fun virtual fundraising ideas families can try at home with parental supervision include:
Thank you for stepping up during this challenging time, and most especially for your support and generosity, which helps March of Dimes end preventable premature birth and infant and maternal mortality. The cause for nearly half of all premature births is unknown. It can happen to any family.
