Weston Tennis Team presents $4.3K
to March of Dimes
Thursday, June 27, 2013
With the conclusion of the regular season on May 24, 2013, and its victory against Bedford, the Varsity Boys Tennis team completed its
second "Do It for the Babies" pledge drive for
the March of Dimes.
The team solicited pledges from family and friends at the start of the season. Pledgers would promise to pay the March of Dimes a certain amount of money for each game the player won during the regular season. Since games, not matches, were the relevant factor, players could accumulate earnings even if they lost a match. The team also received $800 in straight donations.
The team raised more than $3,500 in 2012. This year several Junior
Varsity players participated, adding to the excitement and to the bottom line. Co-captain Benjamin Spector won the most games and earned the most pledges. Number one singles player Ethan Chan and Daniel Eluchans were also top earners.
Members of the team visited the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Brigham and Women's hospital where they presented their donation of $4,384.96 to the Massachusetts chapter of the March of Dimes.
The March of Dimes was founded by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to combat polio. Having essentially eradicated the disease, the organization turned to themission of improving the health of babies by seeking to prevent birth defects, prematurity and infant mortality.
NICUs were first established by the March of Dimes and many of the procedures were developed through research funded by the March of Dimes.
