March of Dimes - Walk for Babies

Why we walk

When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to nearly half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies. We’ve been walking since 1970 and have raised an incredible $2.3 billion to benefit all babies.

What to expect

This year, 3 million people will join their family, friends and colleagues in nearly 700 communities across the nation. Our volunteers and staff will encourage and support you in your efforts to raise awareness and funds. No matter if this is your first year or your 25th, you can expect the event to be fun, compelling and rewarding.

The money you raise in March for Babies funds important research and programs that help babies begin healthy lives. Take a look at how you’ve already helped.

Documentation:

You must be pre-approved first!  Don’t forget that your service project must have already received approval from your roundhouse advisor before documenting your hours.

Students must document all service activities on the Silver Cord Verification Form- one form for each site or project.  In order to validate the student’s hours, the Silver Cord Verification  Form must be signed by the supervisor at the completion of service.  A student reflection is an important piece of this document that must be completed by the student volunteer. Time for breaks, meals, or travel should not be included toward service hours.  Forms should be submitted electronically to the student’s Roundhouse Advisor.  Forms should be submitted no later than May 1st.  


Volunteer or service hours completed during the summer may be applied to the following school year.  Students should contact Mr. Strauch or Mrs. Kimball if they have questions during the summer.


Silver Cord Guidelines and Service Ideas


  • 50 hours must be completed before the end of the first full week of senior year.

  • Services must be performed for someone other than a family member.

  • Services can not be for pay.

  • Services cannot be court ordered.

  • Services must be pre-approved and documented.

  • Parents cannot sign form.

  • Silver Cord hours must be providing a SERVICE or meet a clear need for a non-profit agency, school, park, charity program or fundraiser. or community event.  The service should be “above and beyond” one’s usual scope of involvement.

  • Hours that are accrued through school sponsored organizations may only be counted toward half the Silver Cord requirement.  this would include service hours for the national Honor Society, SADD, etc.

  • You may not include any hours from a church service (serving, singing, playing music), preparing/cleaning related to a church service, church programs such as confirmation or church committees.  However, if you volunteer through your church and perform service that is NOT expected to complete a particular program, this would count.


The following are ideas to fulfill hours of service:

  • Clean up a park (pulling weeds, completing a project).

  • Volunteer at a food pantry.

  • Volunteer at a Humane Shelter

  • Volunteer at a Nursing Home or Hospice.

  • Volunteer at the library or recreation center.

  • Volunteer for a Chamber of Commerce.

  • Volunteer for a non-profit organization.

  • Volunteer for Little League (Coach, referee).

  • Volunteer for Relay for Life.

If you have questions speak to your Roundhouse Adviser to seek pre approval for your volunteer hours.
