A word about corporate sponsorship.

How can I help if I can't walk?

Even if you can't walk, you can still get sponsors and raise money for the March of Dimes. Call 1-800-686-2569 and volunteer to help register walkers or serve refreshments on Sunday, May 15, WalkAmerica Day. Another good way to help is to sponsor someone who is walking.
