                            March for Babies
                     A Benefit for the March of Dimes
                          Sunday, April 17, 2011

What is it? It’s a fund-raiser to support “The March of Dimes” research to
prevent prematurity in babies, birth defects, and newborn deaths. Also, March
of Dimes educates mothers-to-be on how to live healthy life-styles.

Why should I participate? For Fun, Exercise, a Day with Friends and
Families, to contribute to a Worthy Cause, and to earn JUNIOR BETA
SERVICE CREDITS!

How do I participate? Ask your family and friends to sponsor you. Collect
donations from them. We encourage every member to get at least $5.00 in pledges.
Join us for the Walk if you can! If you can’t be there, you will get Jr. Beta
credit for your contributions anyway. Walkers should collect at least $25.00.

If you register on-line, you can e-mail your friends and family to sponsor you.
Use technology to build a network of support. See the purple document for
directions on how to Register On-Line. Otherwise, make phone calls and ask
people. Many people are very happy to help this organization. Just ask. Let
your sponsors sign a “March for Babies” card to show that they helped.

When is the money due? Bring an envelope with your paid pledges to Mrs.
Piccioni by Tuesday, April 12th. Checks should be made to “March of Dimes”.

Walk Site Details: Sunday, April 17th
                  Sawyer Point in Cincinnati
                  Registration at 8:00
                  Walk starts at 9:00
We have a choice of a 6-mile walk or a 3-mile Family Fun Walk – We will take a
scenic route through area landmarks and enjoy free food, goodie bags, special
guests and other surprises. Parents are welcome to walk, too.

Transportation: We will not take a school bus. Decide with your family or
friends the best way to carpool to Sawyer Point. The organizers have all kinds
of fun things for families to do there, so get your parents to come and
participate. I’ll get detailed directions for your drivers if you need them.
How many credits will I earn?
Walkers must bring at least $25. Walkers will earn 3 Beta Credits for walking
plus 2 Credits for each $25 you collect.

If you only collect money, you’ll earn 1 Beta Credit for $5 - $10. 2 Credits for
$11 - $25; 4 Credits for $26 - 50; 6 Credits for $51 - 75 in donations; $76 - 100
= 8 credits; $101+ = 10 credits. Add 2 more credits for each $25 thereafter.

         We will make further plans at our Jr. Beta Meeting on April 12th.
       This is your chance to earn some Beta Credits and help a great cause!

Summary:
Walk and donate $25 – 50 = 5 Credits
Walk and earn 2 more credits for every extra $25 you collect.

Donate $5 - 10 but don’t walk = 1 Credit
Donate $11 – 25 but don’t walk = 2 Credit
Donate $26 – 50 but don’t walk = 4 Credits
Donate $51 – 75 but don’t walk = 6 Credits
Earn 2 more credits for every $25 you donate even if you don’t walk.
