EWC March for Babies Team held annual fundraiser

March of DimesThe Eastern Wyoming College March for Babies Team kicked off their first annual fundraising event. Torrington March for Babies was held on Friday, May 1. The EWC March for Babies Team was a collaboration between EWC student groups, Torrington High School FBLA, and Lingle/Fort Laramie High School FBLA.

“With all of the support and generous donations, our newly founded Eastern Wyoming March for Babies Team was able to raise almost $1,600 to help the Wyoming Chapter of the March of Dimes. Approximately forty faculty, staff, students and community members gathered on a beautiful afternoon, for the Torrington March for Babies,” shared Julie Sherbeyn, EWC Head Volleyball coach, and event organizer.

“Thank you to all of the Lancer Community for your generosity and support, and for marching with us in the fight against prematurity.”

The March of Dimes is a national organization that raises money to give hope to nearly half a million babies born too soon each year.  All of the money raised will go to the Wyoming Chapter of the March of Dimes in Casper to support programs right here in Wyoming that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. Money raised by March of Dimes Volunteers also funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies.
