FBLA’s Annual March for Babies Walkathon Set for March 23

Future Business Leaders of America

The Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Virgin Islands State Chapter, invites the public to its annual March for Babies Walkathon to be held at 5:45 a.m. on Saturday, March 23, beginning at Plaza Extra West and ending at the Midre Cummings Playground, in Frederiksted (across from Fort Frederik).

Formerly known as ‘Walk America, March for Babies,’ the annual FBLA territory-wide fundraiser benefits three cause-related projects, two of which remain the same from year to year: the March of Dimes (National Project) and the Dorothy S. Walcott Fund (FBLA Project).

Each year, a local charity or organization is selected to share the proceeds of March for Babies. Past charities included the St. Croix Chapter of the American Red Cross, St. Croix Cardiac Center, Governor Juan F. Luis Hospital and Medical Center — Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and Markis Anthony Rey Foundation.

This year FBLA has chosen the National Alliance on Mental Health Illness, NAMI, as its third beneficiary.
