Why we march
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and the March of Dimes formed a national partnership in 1980 with Project Alpha. This collaborative project is designed to provide education, motivation and skill-building on issues of responsibility, relationships, teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases for young males ages 12-15 years. For more than 20 years, the men of Alpha Phi Alpha have been working with the staff and volunteers of the March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation, taking Project Alpha to hundreds of communities and thousands of teen males.The time has come for participation in another avenue of the March of Dimes partnership; volunteerism and fund-raising for March for Babies.Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick. Our team is walking in March for Babies because we want to do something about this. I know you care, too. That's why I'm asking you to join us.
